If you really want to feel as though you’re living in the wilderness, how about a four-story glass house surrounded by enormous and magnificent trees?
The treehouse among the forest of fir trees was designed by Kazakh architect Aibek Almssov of A.Masow Architects.
Although the idea was first born in 2013, its construction was halted after an investor had pulled out of the project.
It wasn’t until a solar panel and manufacturer became intrigued by the idea that the “Tree in the House” finally came to fruition.
According to Almassov, “We wanted to combine the capabilities of modern industrial design and the natural wealth and beauty. And more importantly it doesn’t do harm to the environment. This is an opportunity to escape from the sweltering concrete boxes and feel the present unity with nature.”
The treehouse will be open to the public on a reservation basis. It will be powered by a Tesla Powerwall, a battery that stores solar energy for off-the-grid use.”
It was completed in 2017
