An Inverted Glass Treehouse For The Grownups

By in Green, House

Many believe that tree houses are just for kids, but the Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov of A Masow Architects begs to differ by designing a tubular glass treehouse. Christened, “Tree in the House,” it encircles a fir tree in a forest.

Rendering 360-degree-views of the neighboring forest, the inverted treehouse is conceived to offer an escape from the concrete spaces of the city. Rising up to four levels, the ring-shaped floors twirl around the tree.

Images show that the topmost storeys rise above the tree canopy. It also includes a spiraling white staircase that coils along the trunk of the tree.

Also the glazed balustrades with wooden railings surround the atrium on each level so as not to block the views.

Designed to deliver an alternative to the bustle of city life, the architect intends to blend the modern industrial design with the natural wealth and beauty.

Intended to enhance spiritual purification, enlightenment as well as promote harmonising with the environment, Tree in the House renderings show a glass shower cubicle and other free-standing furniture dotted along the curved glass walls.
