Glass House Design

Photo: Carlo Santambrogio

This is one glass house I would not mind living in, the only rule is no stones allowed. The house is a conceptual design by milano-based designer and architect Carlo Santambrogio. These are actually pictures of a very good rendering and not a real house. Not yet anyway. The house above is part of his glass house series and this one in particular is designed to be a "snow house." The grid structure of the house is made to be modular and can be designed into almost any configuration.

In his "cliff house" design, the house is elevated over a thin sheet of water, making it's occupants feel like they are floating above the cliff.

While these concepts are beautiful, I do have a few hang-ups. One, how scary would it be at night? Let's be real, it would be the darkest house ever. Two, using the restroom and shower would be no fun for anyone at all. Finally, glass is great when it's clean, but then again you have to keep it clean and that is a lot of glass.

What do our Neatoramanauts think? Would you live in one of these homes? View more photos here!

I would only live in or rent the house if it were in the middle of a very busy city center and was accompanied by very attractive, randy, lewd-natured companions. But not in the wilderness...that would be rather pointless...would it not?

There you are enjoying the amazing view when a small bird bangs into the glass, plink. No worries the bird shakes it off and flies away. The impact, however, causes a small crack [plink]. You stand up [plink]. "What the hell?!" [plink, plink, plink] Can you get to the door before the house breaks up and falls into the water? Great idea for a game!
