There's nothing more beautiful than having a house like the Fertile House where there's no definitive boundary between outdoor and indoor.

Designed by French-based MU Architects, the Fertile House is located in Tours, France. Situated in a residential neighborhood, this corner lot home encompasses a serene terrace with a central garden space that's a perfect getaway. Many parts of the home are designed to lead directly outdoors, which blends together with minimal contrasts. An opaque net wraps around the perimeter of the rooftop that provides some privacy.

This home is catered to elderly couples, as the bedroom is located on ground level while the living space, common areas and kitchen are situated on the upper level. The Fertile House features a staircase that leads directly to the garden oasis.
