London-based architects firm PCKO collaborated with Poland-based MOFO Architects to create this stunning glass house that’s located smack dab in the middle of nature. The fully-glazed steel frame structure, suspended above site, preserves the existing natural environment and offers beautiful panoramic views of the distant Tatra Mountains.

Located on the outskirts of Krakow, Poland, the 1500 sq ft (140 sq m ) Jodlowa House features two main bedrooms, a covered swimming pool, and a 5-story viewing tower. Guest room can be found on the lower floors of the tower, while a study is located at the top.
