Almost every one of us has dreamed of living in a tree house as kids. The joy of being perched high up in a tree with just the bare necessities is exciting and enthralling. However, the dream of a tree house isn’t just attributed to kids anymore, where tree houses around the world are being constructed by renowned architects in a bid to woo people back to nature. But!! All these come at a price especially when you see this particular glass tree house design that will simply blow your mind.
1 A Space Age Style Glass Tree House
This tubular glass paneled tree house has an immaculate design that borders almost on the space-age while taking you back to nature as a dwelling in the forest. This splendid tree house was on the verge of becoming a reality when renowned Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov chalked out the design for rich investors to woo people to live amongst nature without having to destroy the surrounding fauna. However at the last moment the scheme was abandoned.
2 A Work Of Art Bringing Man Close To Nature
There will no doubt come a time when man will look to nature for a more serene dwelling. This may be a design but it will soon be a reality. Almassov’s project will soon see the light of day as new investors have been roped into the project. A glass and solar panel manufacturer is now backing the project even as its organizers invite members of the public to donate towards its implementation in exchange for visiting rights, to lounge around, relax and have a cup of coffee high up in the woods.
On completion, the tree house will be a magnificent fabricated structure built around the wooden core of the tree. Almassov’s architecture is akin to a work of art where nature and man can come together without destroying each other’s resources.
3 A Conservationist’s Delight!
The glass tree house won’t be just a novelty; it will rightly address the, back to nature theme with great sophistication and detailing; where drinking water will be sourced from purified and recycled rain water. Aesthetical spotlight on surrounding leaves will derive energy from strategically placed solar panels generating electric current. The biggest benefit of the glass paneled tubular tree house is the vital amount of oxygen flowing from the tree throughout the entire house.
4 This Tree House Will Be a Reality When Construction Starts In 2017
Perhaps the most attractive part of this incredible tree house is the entrance and its glass paneled shower built over the forest floor. Almassov says that the tree house has already past the planning stage and the construction will commence in 2017. Plans are afoot to build the structure in a forest in Kazakhstan where it will be open to all, as a public amenity rather than restrict its sale to a single individual.
Although at present there are some improvements required due to the lack of sufficient bedroom space; those involved with the project hope it will serve as a base for similar projects in future.
5 Celebrities Like Designer Fort Huntington Love Tree Houses Too
While the glass tree house is yet to be built as a unique but novel concept in nature living, there are individuals around the planet who have taken their goals of living in a tree house one step further. Take for example Ralph Lauren designer Foster Huntington who quit his job and pursued his childhood dream. The tree house he got built for himself on the Oregon border in Washington has been published as a photo book with his tree house having a name, The Cinder Cone!!
The glass tree house by Aibek Almassov is remarkable and unbelievable. Once it is constructed, you can well expect it to be one of the wonders of this modern century.
