Stunning Tubular Glass House Built Around Tree
Kazakh history is rife with stories of people throwing stones, making this glass tree-house, by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov, the perfect weapon to combat stone proliferation. First designed in 2013, the dream was shattered when investors pulled out; now, however, with a glass and solar panel manufacturer expressing interest, A. Masow Architects’ ‘Tree in the House’ could soon become a reality.
“About two years ago I created the design of the house which was harmless and as close to the nature. I respect nature, it feeds us but we destroy it. I’ve been looking for a solution that would help in the future to avoid the destruction of forests, we want to live with it in harmony. So i created the tubular glass house around a tree.”
