Amazing Tubular Glass House Built Around Tree

This unusual, tubular glass, four-story home by A.Masow Architects’ Aibek Almassov is definitely one of my favorite conceptual house over the years. Many believed it was unlikely ever to be built, but it seems the architect is proving them wrong. First designed in 2013, the dream was shattered when investors pulled out; now, however, with a glass and solar panel manufacturer expressing interest, A.Masow Architects, “Tree in the House” could soon become a reality.

“The main purpose of this project is to offer an alternative to the bustle of city life,”

explained Almassov.

“We wanted to combine the capabilities of modern industrial design and the natural wealth and beauty. And more importantly it doesn’t harm to environment,” he added. “This is an opportunity to escape from the sweltering concrete boxes and feel the present unity with nature.”
