Tree In The House in Almaty, Kazakhstan
These days, tree houses built in the middle of nowhere are much more common. But a tree growing within a house, now that’s something we don’t see every day. Say hello to the aptly titled ‘Tree In The House.’
Led by architect Almasov Aibek, the team at A. Mascow studio designed this beautiful tree house. This massive cylindrical structure features a facade constructed entirely from glass, as to not obstruct any of 360-degree views. A massive 40-foot fir tree has been planted right in the center of the home, in an attempt to help the occupant better connect with the surrounding nature. The dwelling itself is comprised of four stacked rings constructed from light colored wood, while a white staircase spirals upward from the ground floor. The home is slated to be completed later this year, and is nestled in the mountainous area of Almaty, Kazakhstan. So just how much does a project like this cost? The 38-year old business man who owns the property is expected to spend $375,000 – soup to nuts.
