A new residential design from Aibek Almassov of A. Massow Architects gives new meaning to the term “tree house.” That’s because rather than being built in a tree, Tree in the House is built around a tree.
Tree in the House was originally commissioned by an investor who since removed his funding from the project, but now it’s caught the interest of a company that makes glass and solar panels, A. Massow hopes that it will soon be a reality. But even if the project never gets off the ground, the design itself is one for the time capsule—a tubular glass structure that winds around a single tree to four stories above the ground.
You can get a better idea of Tree in the House by checking out some concept art in the gallery below, and you can get a lot more information on the project at Dezeen right here.
