A. Masow Design Studio might have created the coolest treehouse known to date. Instead of a wooden box nestled among branches and leaves, the Tree in the House is a four-story cylindrical house that is built around a 40-foot fir tree.  Whoever said you can’t be one with nature in the world today, clearly did not look far enough.

The young designer Aibek Almasov is captivated by the idea of self-discovery, he explains:

The house has to be something that can develop your spiritual and creative development. It was to be a place where you could sit with a friend and discuss ideas and philosophise.

It boasts its minimalist design on the hills of Kazakhstan. Even though the house has four floors, the top floor is really meant for viewing because the branches of the tree take up most of the space. There is a hole in the house’s core to let the homeowners sweep up fallen branches and dispose of it in an efficient way. The house features a spiral staircase that curves around the entire glass structure. Hardwood floors were installed as well.
