Extreme Glass House by Santambrogio
This is no movie set or any kind of art object; it is in fact a residence. This glass concept home is created by Italian design firm Santambrogio. Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosio have said that it was the desire of the client to build it in glass completely. Located in Milan, in the middle of a wood. The glass material used for the construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter, which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature of the house.
As you can see, everything in this house is made of glass including the floorings, ceilings and the staircases — yes you’re reading it right, glass staircases. Even the book cases, the tables and the cabinets are made of glass.
