Glass house meets prefab sophistication in this upscale version of the modern shed by Tsubomi. The creators of Tsubomi have dubbed their structure the “aluminum space packaging system,” which speaks to the lightness and modularity of the design.

Glass and aluminum guard against the elements while maintaining a constant connection to the outdoors. But for those who like to throw stones, panels are available in an assortment of non-transluscent materials including lumber.

Tsubomi is light enough for easy assembly, strong enough to build upwards of three stories, and all of the materials are 100% recyclable. If you’ve ever wondered what life is like in a glass house, Tsubomi is a small-scale way to find out.
