American studio Schwartz and Architecture created a nature-integrated home in Northern California. The design is named the 'Lichen House' after Ramalina Lichen, a lace-like green plant that hangs from the branches of the trees in the area around the house. The lichen filters sunlight and the contaminated environment, which is what the architects wanted the house to do.

Working with natural materials, the architects crafted each room in the house to serve a purpose to better the rest of the home. Using oversized windows, the architects achieved a sun-filled space that allows nature to flow into each room. With white minimal walls, warm-colored wood and high-quality finishes, this modern nature-integrated home gives the best of luxury modern living.
