Tubular Glass House by Aibek Almassov
If you’ve always wanted to be at one with nature but couldn’t let go of the creature comforts of modern life, this house might be perfect for you. Designed by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov of A. Masow Architects, ‘Tree in the House’ is a tubular glass house that is built around a single tree, encompassing four floors that spread out the functions of a home vertically, while a winding staircase connects the different levels.
“The main purpose of this project is to offer an alternative to the bustle of city life,” said the architect. “We wanted to combine the capabilities of modern industrial design and the natural wealth and beauty.”
