You could never live in this all-glass house if you are a) obsessive compulsive, because think of the finger prints or b) you ever hope to be naked in privacy.
But in this Daring Architecture, designers have made a total glass house possible.
Now I have seen some pretty interesting, edgy and exciting architecture
before, but I think this takes the cake, an entire house made of glass! Read about this interesting piece of architecture.
Italian architect Carlo Santambrogio and designer Enno Arosic have
released two concept homes constructed entirely out of blue-toned glass.
These home were originally created as concepts to showcase
Santambrogio's glass furniture line Simplicity. Although these glass homes have yet to become a reality they apparently are options to build at a mere $6200 per square foot.
Assuming we put aside the obvious questions like how safe are these
homes, where is the plumbing and electrical, how well are they
insulated, how dirty would the glass get, etc; if you had the money, the
privacy, the land and the view to live in a home where the fluidity of
interior and exterior become one, would you do it? Could you live in
such an exposed, sterile and minimal fashion? This is definitely not for
the faint of heart, but you have to admit it is stunning in a utopian
kind of way.
But if you're a total
exhibitionist, have at it! The good news is, no one can
actually live in this beautiful pair of blue glass houses, unless
they're super rich (they costs $6,200 per square foot to build) and love
impractical things (once again, it is a house made entirely of glass).
They were created by Italian architect Carlo Santambrogio and designer
Enno Arosic as a concept to promote Simplicity, Santambrogio's glass furniture line, which is presumably marketed toward heavy cocaine users.
