Glass houses are one of the most wonderful architectures that boast unique aesthetics and functionality. The glass house architecture dates back to 1940s-50s when Philip Johnson and Mies Van der Rohe created some cool glass structures that had transparent appeal. Although, facade and walls use glass as the main building material, internal partitions and floors bolstered by strong frames provide the required structural stability.
The transparent walls bring loads of natural light and beautiful views in, providing a deep connection with nature. Privacy may be one of the concerns with such architectures but the one-way vision glasses and curtains take good care of it.
Glass houses are a good example of modern architecture that can be a small backyard cabin to a fully-furnished holiday home. The real beauty lies in the connection between interior, exterior and the surrounding landscape.
If you ever wished to live in harmony with nature, the modernist see-through homes are the best ways to enjoy comforts of indoors while being surrounded by the natural beauty of outdoors. Here is a list of modern glass houses from around the world that offer mesmerising views of surrounding landscape from the comfort of bed.
