Glass House Wraps Around Full-Grown Tree
Posted on March 22 2016
Nature enthusiasts are going to love this concept by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov, which features a four-story glass house wrapped around a tree. The project, which has been ready to execute since 2013 but was lacking proper funding, finally secured the necessary investors to turn the concept into a reality. The house will feature a completely glazed and cylindrical structure to give 360 degree views of a forest setting along with four narrow ring-shaped floors and a spiraling white staircase that wraps around the trunk of the tree. Says Aibek, "the main purpose of this project is to offer an alternative to the bustle of city life. We wanted to combine the capabilities of modern industrial design with natural wealth and beauty. And more importantly it doesn't harm the environment." We love it. Check out images below and click here for more on the incredible project.
