High-Rise Apartment Building Inspired By The Shape Of A Tree

This high-rise apartment building in Montpellier, France, uses strategically placed balconies and shades to give residents the maximum outdoor space without blocking views or taking up too much room on the ground. OXO  architecture firm worked on the project with Sou Fujimoto and Nicolas Laisn Associates and were inspired by the shape of a tree. The architects used a smaller footprint for the base and “leaves” expanding outward on higher floors.
