A. Masow Design Studio’s unique home design is centered within the heart of a forest in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Their “tree in the house” concept is a gorgeous glass home that would be completely constructed around a single 40 foot fir tree, allowing the tree’s branches to stretch naturally, fusing nature with living space.
A circular glass façade envelops the entire trunk and branches, the transparent home artfully blending with its surroundings. The height of the home allows for beautiful tree top views and is a place for contemplation and peaceful solitude.
The home would be built using metal columns, along with plasterboard panels and concrete and wooded flooring. There is a staircase that winds around the tree, giving the home a tower like feel.
The project is estimated to cost £225,000 in an area where homes typically sell within the £625,000 range. The firm has been approached by private clients who are keen to have their own crystalline forest home.
