The craze for the treehouses isn’t slowing down. In fact, new creative, unique ideas appear everywhere these days. But, a tubular glass treehouse by Kazakh architect Aibek Almassov certainly stands out. Christened, “Tree in the House,” it encircles a fir tree in a forest. The house consists of four circular floors connected by a spiral staircase with a mature fir tree enclosed at the centre of it. As Dezeen points out, the bathroom’s rounded shower parallels the form of the building. Other furnishings take advantage of the home’s incredible 360-degree-views of a forest setting.
This idea was born back in 2013, but an investor backed out, making it impossible to construct. Now that glass and solar panel manufacturers have expressed interest in the project, Almassov’s vision may become a reality. Should all go according to plan, Almassov hopes to begin construction on the project in Almaty, Kazakstan, in early 2017.
