Superb Apartments With An Outdoor Ski Slope

Getting out of bed in the morning isn't easy, but it might just be that little bit easier knowing that in order to leave your apartment you can exit via a 1,000-foot artificial ski slope, as is the case of the ‘Slalom House’ in Astana, Kazakhstan. The building is a proposed project estimated to cost $70m and will come with an artificial outdoor ski slope that will allow visitors and residents to ski or snowboard all year round.

The house itself will feature 21 storeys made up of 421 two-bedroom apartments as well as restaurants and shops located on the lower levels. Designed by Shokhan Mataibekov Architects, the house is yet to be approved by local planning. We seriously hope they give this place the go-ahead.

Italian architect Stefano Boeri has a love for incorporating trees and nature into his designs and his latest apartment tower in Lausanne, Switzerland, will be a world first. At 117m-tall (384ft) the 36 story apartment will be the first ever to be covered in evergreen trees and will be appropriately named “La Tour des Cedres” (The Tower of Cedars).

In total there are 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants spread over nearly 3,000 square meters of space. All of the plants will protect the apartments from noise pollution and harsh winds whilst improving the view for residents by breaking up an otherwise concrete and monochrome view of the surrounding city.

The 'La Tour des Cedres' will be the world's first 384ft tall apartment covered in ever green trees.
