One of the things I want to do before I die is build my own custom house. Thanks to Pinterest I’ve been collecting images I see online onto two boards, Dream House – Outside and Dream House – Inside. On the outside, I picture this modern house created with lots of glass and wood, while on the inside, I favor clean white walls and color-popping art.
This tubular glass house, by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov, caught my attention. It’s a conceptual house that has a mature fir tree enclosed within it. Called Tree in the House, it’s a cylindrical structure that gives a 360-degree view of a forest. A glass and solar panel manufacturer is interested in building this, so construction could be imminent.
