According to Benjamin Starr from Visual News, Almasov created a “house” that, instead of being built on a tree, was built around it, turning the living 40-foot-tall fir tree into the house’s central element. In fact, is it more appropriately called “tree in a house”. As you can see through the images, the house designed by Almasov, instead of having the traditional rectangular geometry, has a cylindrical glass structure that surrounds the tree. Furthermore, although the structure does not offer much privacy to the occupants, it allows them to have a 360-degree view of the landscape that surrounds them.
According to Rachel Oakley from Lost At E Minor, who spoke to Almasov, the four-storey home uses renewable sources of energy such as solar panels and geothermal heating and air conditioning systems. Daily Mail reports that the house was built for a 38-year-old businessman last year at a cost of £240,000.
