Green “Tree Home” unveiled in Bulgaria

This striking Large Home Tree is an experiment in self-sufficient housing that relies on local environmental resources for all of its needs. Situated in Zvezditsa, Bulgaria, the home features a boxy frame that maximizes living space while an abundance of windows maximize light.
The architects at Bignatov Studio developed an unusual wall and roof motif that depict a tree branching out and taking root.
The symbolism is well justified granted how the home extracts energy from the earth, collects rainwater, and harvests solar power to sustain itself.
