The many floors of White Walls in Nicosia serve a number of functions: ten floors are dedicated to residential apartments, six are for offices, and there’s a two-story retail area, all of which tower over the sprawling but quiet old town in Cyprus. Most striking, however, is the flowing greenery that spills from the balconies and out into the balmy Mediterranean air. The foliage sprouts from extensive patios, terraces, and outdoor loggia, each of which offer a smooth transition from inside to outside for a natural climate control.

Designed by Jean Nouvel, White Walls is one of the many case studies presented in our book Evergreen, which showcases a life lived alongside plants.
