Nutrient-rich water from the pond is then used to irrigate a rooftop fruit and vegetable garden.
When clients approached Mexico City–based architecture firm Estudio MMX, they had a deceptively simple request: a 1,000-square-meter garden on a 1,000-square-meter plot in a neighborhood called Lomas de Chapultepec, west of Mexico City. The problem, of course, was that in addition to a 1,000-square-meter garden, they also wanted a house. Estudio MMX’s solution was to use large terraces to create a garden in three dimensions that connects with the house at every possible opportunity.
Niko Architect and landscape firm Ecopochva designed a Moscow home that doesn’t play by the rectilinear rules of conventional architecture. Vegetation blankets the home’s concrete form, and its walls sweep upward and outward to become roofs. Molded floor-to-ceiling windows curve to grant panoramic views of the backyard and swimming pool.
Glass walls and large windows create an airy interior that feels connected to the outside.

The landscape engulfs the strategically positioned home, hiding it from the street and from nearby neighbors.
The concrete slab roof was made from precast panel forms. "The main roof is also a roof garden completely free from infrastructures such as water tanks and solar panels, which are then located at the rear of the plot, taking advantage of its sloped section," says the firm.
The firm worked to provide as much outdoor access as possible, so the living spaces spill out onto a protected veranda, and a ladder climbs up to the green roof.
The site has beautiful views of a nature reserve at the edge of a stream.
Architect Richard Hammond and his wife, Daniela, a designer, saw their move to San José as a temporary adventure. But when they found an abandoned, partially built house on a beautiful sloping site, they decided to turn it into their dream home, putting down more permanent roots in the process.
A series of open and closed volumes, the house incorporates a range of materials, including local mahogany, standing-seam metal, shingled glass, and concrete. A green roof tops one end.
The barrel-vaulted roofs that top the bedroom wing and the living areas help collect rainwater into the underground cistern and "create a new topography."
Located on a relatively flat and remote 2.5-acre plot, Casa Terreno occupies two temperate zones (forest and prairie) on a sparsely populated mountain in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.
The two structures are connected by green space.
"By reversing the shape of the land and the house, we wanted to think about the relationship between house and nature and notion of form," said the firm.
The home's lower level is submerged in the hillside. The three bedrooms on the upper level have access to the roof terrace.
The 2,026-square-foot house is split into two structures, with an underground garage separating the two halves.
The spa building behind the pool is topped by a green roof.

Ivy plants wrap along the open grills on the top floor, and spill over from the windows of the first floor to create a vibrant green facade. The home is part of a larger project by VTN Architects called "House for Trees."
The permeable top floor allows greenery in to the home to spill out toward the neighborhood.
Stepping Park House has a park as a northern neighbor—a rarity in densely populated Ho Chi Minh City.

The structure as it sits in the landscape.
Casa FM's flat profile provides a natural home for a living roof.
The linear layout of Casa FM is much like a railroad apartment. All of the rooms lead towards the living room and its spectacular view.

Bricks were assembled in a pattern to allow ventilation on the second story.
ODDO Architects designed a contemporary home for a family of four on a narrow, 4 meter by 16 meter plot of land in the dense city of Hanoi, Vietnam.
Project Name: Dawnsknoll
The home's shell of timber and corten steel will develop a natural patina over time.
Dawnsknoll’s exterior sidings are cement panels and Resysta wood. The house’s front gate and garage are made from recycled wood.
The sleeping quarters take advantage of their location at the end of the wings.  They are private spaces with unobstructed views.
Approached from above, the home blends into the landscape thanks to an expansive green roof that's set on SOPREMA elastomeric waterproofing membrane. In winter, the house is disguised under a blanket of snow.
The covered parking pad is supported by an exposed concrete volume with (unseen) built-in storage. The concrete also provides protection against water runoff from the mountain.
Glazed walls allow the interior living areas to be seamlessly connected to the outdoors.
"The wood establishes a very emphatic and directional rhythm that orders the project," says Eduardo Cadaval, one of the firm’s founders.
