"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."
Casa CorManca PAUL CREMOUX studio [via]
Casa CorManca (a portmanteau of the owners’ names) is a three-story, poured-in-place concrete structure, cubiform in shape, and clad in black slate on the exterior and wood on the interior.
In addition to an interlocking weave of vertical spaces, a lushly verdant, living wall creates a vertical garden on the second floor. Its more than 4,000 plants, the architects say, absorb nearly 600 lbs. of carbon dioxide per year.
