No matter the minuses of living on display we see more and more glass elements in modern architecture. They are used to create an airy living space or to open up more private areas like bedroom and bathrooms to the views of garden greenery.

Designer Ennio Arosio has taken the ‘glass house’ concept to a whole new level with his literally glass house. A concept reliased by an architect Carlo Santambrogio. The concept house looks like a glass cube featuring two stories, glass walls, roof and even stairs, standing in the snowy forest.

While such a house would seem extremely exposed the modern projects that were already built aren’t exactly too private either. For instance, a house by John Robert Nilsson Architects has entire two walls glazed and exposed to the surrounding mountain green views.

Another example of glass house architecture is a residence by Sagan Piechota Architecture. The house is almost entirely made of glass allowing the beautiful views to be enjoyed from indoors.
