You'll pay a premium for an apartment with a terrace in hyper-dense cities like New York. But The Plant Room could be your solution for life al fresco without a rent increase.

The Plant Room, a competition entrant in the Sustainable Habitat Challenge, was originally conceived as an apartment solution to improve the quality of life of inhabitants in in Wellington, New Zealand while reducing their energy and water consumption. Wellington, like New York, has only a small percentage of housing stock that is replaced each year, and only a fraction of that is built with environmental concerns in mind.
