How Do You Feel About Living in a Glass Home?

You have to admit that these pictures look great. A house in the middle of nowhere, with transparent walls for amazing views and late night fires… but let’s not get carried away. This glass home concept comes from Carlo Santambrogio and Ennio Arosio, or Santambrogiomilano and was designed along with a series of furniture sets, some made entirely out of glass, some just created in order to fit in a glass environment.  The collection is unique and stylish and you can check out some of the items  on the producer’s web page. Even though this house is just a concept, it is a really interesting one and also very eye-catching.  Which is why we would like to ask you if you would build yourself a place like this, even though it implies absolutely no privacy?

    Very nice but indeed looks very cold. Wood as a product is much better choice….

    no one can live in this type of place as it seems so deserted…. it looks very cold and at night it will look very haunted…. glass houses are not a god idea i think…..its so barren…

    Cute, probably great gimmick for commercialize retail buildings. Unfortunately, it’s quite impractical for security & privacy reasons. A burglar could totally plan in advance what to steal from my lovely glass house AND what the best escape route would be…

    I realize the house is just a concept, but in reality … where are the lamps, wires and electricity? The plumbing??

    You can say I am throwing stones… but this is just a glorified tent in the woods, no?

    Hello,

    Very nice idea! But when it comes to practicality i doubt it would be so nice!!!
    Personally I would feel completely naked, cold & exposed to all kind of elements!!!
    I am wondering abt the plumbing & wiring as well!

    P.S: Great Blog u have guys congrats!

    I always wanted to have big windows but in middle Europe winters are cold so the heating costs would be huge. Another thing about this house – imagine a moment when you accidentally trip on the second floor. And what about using the toilet? Not too private :/ And you know, glass like to get dirty and some have to clean it some times.

    Sorry for my crappy english.

    I admire the craftsmanship and creativity, but like others, I see glaring impracticalities. Its a beautiful structure, but not a beautiful home. (In the Winter, I think I’d spend a lot of time under covers:) Nevertheless, thanks for sharing such an unusual example of human imagination, built.
