Jumpstart Your Day: A Tree House for Grown-Ups
Modern design meets nature in this architectural marvel
We’re all too familiar with tree houses—we’ve seen it in books, movies, and even imagined our own secret hideaway while growing up. Others have created their own tree haven, coming up with cozy nooks that serve as reading rooms and guest rooms. There are also a few who took things to the next level by constructing an actual house that's far from the noise of the city.
It can be quite challenging to work with trees—especially when you want to ensure comfort while still preserving nature. This perfect balance between two different elements sets Aibek Almasov’s Tree in the House apart from the rest.
Nestled among a forest of fir trees, the home is centered on a full-grown tree, with a cylindrical glass structure instead of the usual four walls of houses.
According to a report by The Daily Mail, as shared by Mental Floss, the projects aims to offer an alternative to city living by “fusing a protective house and a natural environment without creating a visual separation.”
While homeowners had to give up privacy, the house gives them a stunning 360-degree view of the breathtaking forest, as well as an abundance of natural light. A spiral staircase was incorporated into the design—allowing occupants to access the four floors and the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom.
The Kazakh architect from A.Masow Architects also relayed to Co.Exist that renewable energy sources will be utilized within the home—such as a geothermal heat pump and solar coating on the glass.
Imagine enjoying your morning coffee as the sun greets you. We're sure that it will be priceless!
I especially loved this reading nook complete with comfy chairs, a shelf, and a mini coffee table. True to the concept of the design studio, this home can help fuel your creativity, while giving you a chance to take a breather, and enjoy a quiet life.
