House-cactus in Holland. Recently, it has become fashionable to use some green technologies in the design of a building and its construction.

So in Rotterdam, a 19-storey cactus house appeared, consisting of petal plates arranged on top of each other. Each of them ends with a loggia or a landscaped balcony. Since the petals alternate irregularly, this allows the maximum amount of natural light to enter the house. The house was painted white for a reason - it allows it to heat up less in hot weather. This dwelling houses 98 apartments with superior comfort. This unusual project aimed to maximize the interior space in each apartment and make it the most illuminated. The protruding parts are large terraces on which you can completely do gardening, since these places will be illuminated by the sun from different angles, which is what plants need.
