House in the Landscape
Organic architecture was first coined by Frank Lloyd Wright nearly a century ago. Although the practice isn’t new, Niko Architecture offers a fresh take on the philosophy with the House in the Landscape. The dwelling lives in harmony with its environment, appearing to emerge from the artificial landscape like a sculpted boulder. To further integrate the exterior into the surroundings, a green roof is planted with woody and herbaceous species. Floor-to-ceiling glazing keeps a constant connection between the interior and the outdoors by offering expansive views. The windows also expand the living spaces to a terrace where a free-flowing infinity pool mimics a natural body of water.
