Contemporary Glass House in Sydney, Australia

Utz-Sanby Architects has designed this luxury glass house / luxury tree house nestled on a steep slope in Sidney among green surroundings. With curved steel beams and a linear architecture the modern premise is nothing but a dream home with contemporary furnishings, large open spaces and warm colors that make you relax.

This contemporary glass house sits among the trees, on a series of concrete piles with treelike steel supports. The linear architecture is enclosed in glass, and surrounded by timber decks that further connect this cool house to nature. "The curved steel beams that frame the decks and floor plate, are reminiscent of a ships prow and hover above the ground," according to the architect.

The angled steel staircase leads up to the front entrance, painted an arresting red shade that really stands out among the green surroundings. Inside, this modern residential design is open and bright, thanks to the abundant windows. The kitchen is a hub of this home, extending out onto a large covered deck, allowing for all-season, all-weather al fresco entertaining.
