Modern Steel and Glass Floating House

Steel and Glass houses are one of the most wonderful architectures that boast unique aesthetics and functionality. The glass house architecture dates back to 1940s-50s when Philip Johnson and Mies Van der Rohe created some cool glass structures that had transparent appeal. Although, facade and walls use glass as the main building material, internal partitions and floors bolstered by strong frames provide the required structural stability.

The transparent walls bring lots of natural light and beautiful views in, providing a deep connection with nature. Privacy may be one of the concerns with such architectures but the one-way vision glasses and curtains take good care of it.  

Glass houses are a good example of modern architecture that can be a small backyard cabin to a fully-furnished vacation home. The real beauty lies in the connection between interior, exterior and the surrounding landscape.
