The weather in Buenos Aires is perfect for growing vegetation year round, and Bam! Arquitectura has designed a home to take advantage of those balmy climes. The narrow townhouse, which is called House MeMo, has a rooftop garden that follows along a sloping ramp down onto an exterior balcony on the second floor and then through to the interior of the home on the ground floor.
The interior portion of the ramped garden is fully exposed to the outside elements from above; it effectively drops into the interior of the home. This allows the garden to benefit from natural sun and precipitation, reducing the labor power that would otherwise be required from House MeMo's residents. That interior portion is enclosed by glass walls, blocking any garden mess from spilling into the central living space.
