S/S 2015 : Back to the Land : Wild Living

Go Back to the Land with this stunning take on a treehouse. Tucked away in a forest of fir trees in the mountains of Almaty, Kazakhstan, the aptly titled Tree in the house was created by A. Masow Design Studio under the direction of architect Aibek Almasov. 

“The project aims to offer an alternative to bustling city life and stifling urban structures by fusing a protective house and a natural environment without creating a visual separation,” explained Almasov to the Mail Online. The four-storey home features a living fir tree at its core and it set to house two people. Glass walls topped with a glass roof let the house’s inhabitants rise with the dawn, watch the sun set from the comfort of their sofa and stargaze while sheltered from the cold.

For a less luxurious take on Wild Living, revisit Wild Sleeps, our wonderful contribution from Phoebe Smith, editor of the travel magazine Wanderlust. Forgoing the comfort of her bed for a solitary adventure in nature, Smith shares the appeal of Wild Living in her honest and heartfelt ode to wild camping.
