The garden for our home is an afterthought on most occasions. It is a feature that often complements the design of the house but is not the defining feature that sets it apart. Not in the case of the MeMo House in San Isidro, Argentina designed by BAM! Arquitectura though. This gorgeous contemporary home in concrete embraces greenery at every turn with a vertical garden that slopes its way across three different levels and offers eco-friendly goodness along with refreshing aesthetics. While concrete and a neutral color scheme shape the interior of the house, on the outside, it is the visual of the sloped green garden and the spacious rear deck that steal the show.

System of green ramps connects different levels of the house and adds ample greenery

The sloping garden morphs into a full-fledged rooftop garden when it hits the top floor while the rear garden contains the pool, deck and the fire pit along with other smart features. On the ground floor, the garden meets the living room with sliding glass doors acting as an interface between the interior and the exterior. Solar panels on the rooftop provide green energy to the house and power both its heating and lighting needs even as additional green features give the house a high LEED rating.
