Italian architecture firm Act Romegialli renovated the small unused garage of a private residence in the Raethian Alps and turned it into Green Box, a small home with an exterior covered with climbing garden vegetation.


The structure of Green Box is constructed with lightweight galvanized metal and steel wire to create a three-dimensional support for the garden climbing plants composed primarily of deciduous vegetation.

The interior of the small home consists of a room for gardening tools, a cooking area, and a living space. The kitchen and windows are constructed with galvanized steel and the flooring and sliding doors are made of larch planks. Simple pipes are used for the water supply.
