'Plant Room' Attaches To Apartments For Green Living (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

New Zealand students designed the "Plant Room", an attachable box that bolts on to the exterior of an apartment building, providing cramped city-dwellers an area to garden.

Additionally, the room captures rainwater to use in its garden, has a compost system, and even uses solar power to heat water for the apartment.

Tim Gittos, project coordinator for the "Plant Room," describes it as "a way of making existing residential buildings and dense environments a bit more sustainable, a bit nicer to live in, and use a bit less energy."
