What’s up with trees in glass boxes? Tryna figure this out.
It’s exquisite, but it gives me pause. I’m not exactly sure what makes me feel weird about it. Brings up conflicted feelings of museum displays or test tubes exhibits, but still manages to get me with the warm, peaceful green glow that it brings to an interior.
While I’m being indecisive, enjoy these projects in the meantime. Maybe the idea is a bit weird, but undeniably beautiful (and probably some serious maintenance required).
It might have to do with admiring the classic courtyard structure (shoutout to the ancient Chinese). Instead of a clear (ha.ha.) separation, these houses bringing the courtyard inside and enshrine it in glass, breaking down the distinction between courtyard and home.
In contrast, something like this below- unfussy, clean but very interesting- makes more sense to me.
No glass box required.
