Nature Inspired Glass House Built Around A Tree

Posted on Lifestyle 42

Have you ever had a tree house? How about a tree IN the house? That’s the idea behind this nature inspired building design by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov.

First introduced in 2013, the design never made it out of the blueprints because investors at that time decided to pull out. Yet now there is a hope for this cool concept as one glass and solar panel manufacturer has expressed interest in the project.

The main purpose of this project is to offer an alternative to the bustle of city life,” explained Almassov. “We wanted to combine the capabilities of modern industrial design and the natural wealth and beauty. And moreimportantly it doesn’t do harm to the environment,” he added. “This is an opportunity to escape from the sweltering concrete boxes and feel the present unity with nature.
