Designed by Roof Arquitectos, this nature-infused home located in Morelia, Mexico features gum trees and an astounding modern design.

The integration of nature into architecture appears to be growing in popularity as people aim to adopt more environmentally-friendly building practices while fusing the comforts of modernity with the natural world. This nature-infused home does just that, as it is surrounded by gum trees. The gum trees come out of the concrete floors in this house and have space to grow through its balcony and the roof due to square cut-outs in both.

With the appearance of a 'reverse courtyard,' this nature-infused home takes advantage of natural elements such as earth and light while still maintaining a unique and modern design.
