The tree was incorporated into the roof of the house which allowed the architects to preserve it and make it a part of the house. As a result the house is built and the tree is safe. Of course, if it’s not possible to build around the tree, it can be incorporated into the shed or another premise of the house. Like it was done in Bern Heim Beuk house.
