The 'House in the Outskirts of Brussels' by Philippe Samyn and Partners is a single family residence in Belgium. The facade originally was covered with ivy, but botanical artist Patrick Blanc completely covered the wall and roof with a large range of foreign vegetation and exotic plants.

The building’s facade is completely covered in grass, moss and ferns, and the only visible materials are the glass windows. This house is perfect for a large family with its five children’s rooms, sanitary area, large living room, kitchen and family room.

The back of the house is made completely out of glass with a geometric pattern. This odd and distinctly designed house blends into the scenery from the front, and is transparent in the back. Stats for Plant-Covered Camouflaging Havens Trending: Older & Warm
