Being able to see the tress surrounding the house from every vantage point of this lush home, architectural firm MirĂ³ Rivera Architects designed this beautiful space in a way so that the owners feel connected to nature at all times.

Using natural materials like timber and stone, the lush home is located in Austin, Texas and is completely engulfed by a canopy of oak trees that are almost sculpture-like. Having so much vegetation in such close proximity to the house gives it such a good vibe and airy feel that would be almost impossible to imitate using design tricks of any kind.

The stunning landscaped garden on the outside and all the touches of lush vegetation on the inside give the house a boundary-less feel -- the amount of large panels of glass instead of regular walls also helps.
