How much to clean the windows Amazing see-through house where everything (even the staircase) is made of GLASS
If you treasure privacy, this may not be the house for you.
And the house proud among us could only imagine how long it would take to clean.
But what a view.
These striking artist impressions reveal how an entirely glass house, designed by architect Carlo Santambrogio, would look.
Stunning pictures of architect Carlo Santambrogio”s glass house would look. The architect has released images of his Concept Home in a secluded winter woodland
The kitchen of Santambrogio”s glass house. Behind can be seen the staircase leading up to the first floor, all made entirely of 7mm thick glass
From changing to bathing, sleeping and eating, the blue tinged cube would leave very little to the imagination.
Which is perhaps why the architect has chosen to use computer generated images of the Glass Concept Home in an imagined secluded woodland clearing, away from the prying eyes of the neighbours.
The home is available from the architect”s London Portland Street showroom, and the images are currently being used to showcase Santambrogio”s glass furniture range, which he has named Simplicity.
“After the client requested it,” says Santambrogio, “I came up with the project idea.”
He said: “The aim of the project was to give transparent shape to a precise and essential way of conceiving and living the spaces.”
Comfort still comes first for the designer, and the bed is the only item in the home which is not made entirely of glass
If the wintery scene looks a little too chilly for you, never fear, as the 7mm glass can be speciallyheated to shield occupants from the elements.
At 4,000 per square metre, a typical three bedroom family home would cost about 400,000 to build.
But if you have the funds, architect and glass designer Santambrogio is willing to design almost any glass structure you can think of.
Almost every aspect of the house is made of glass, from the dining table, to the stairs, but itseems comfort still comes first.
The bed is one of the only items not to be made of glass.
The glass house would offer spectacular views. These artist images show how the stunning home could appear on a cliff side, overlooking breathtaking scenery
The house features specially heated glass which can adapt to any setting and weather
