This City Garden Goes Well Beyond Herbs on a Windowsill

When land is scarce, sometimes the only way to go is up and architecture studio Vo Trong Nghia Architects uses this as an outlet to develop an ingenuous and green design in ‘Stacking Green.’ Situated in Ho Chi Minh City, the facade and back of this modern house is composed of a sustainable vertical garden with an automatic watering system collected from the rain. Serving as both a defense from the heat of the sun and a natural barrier against noise and pollution, this solution is the perfect way to tackle the nuances of living in a city in an eco-friendly way.
