The Elok House is an indoor eco sanctuary by Chang Architects with trees rooted from the ground floor that extend up into the second story. Picture not having to leave your home to take a walk in the forest. You are probably picturing yourself as a squirrel, right? Now you don't need to the reside where the wild things are to truly be one with nature.
There are tons of benefits to living in this type of space. For one, there's the reduced need for lighting and air conditioning. But most of all, it's gotta be pretty awesome to be able ask, "Honey, did I leave my keys next to the birch tree?"
