Stefano Boeri Designs First Tree Covered Social Housing Project
Italian architect Stefano Boeri is bringing his vertical forest model to a social-housing project in Eindhoven, to show how green homes can be provided at affordable rents. Trudo Vertical Forest is a proposal for a 19-storey building boasting the same tree-covered balconies as the celebrated Bosco Verticale towers in Milan, completed by Stefano Boeri Architetti back in 2014, and many of the studio's other recent designs. But it marks the first time the architect has proposed using foliage-filled towers for social housing. The project aims to provide 125 homes, which will be rented out at affordable rates and made available to low-income groups in the Dutch city. These compact one-bedroom apartments are expected to suit to young, single occupants and couples.
