Mecanoo builds glass house partly submerged in a lake in the English countryside



Window walls surround all sides of Glass Villa in the Lake, a three-storey house built by Dutch studio Mecanoo in the Cotswolds.

Mecanoo designed the house to be as transparent as possible to maximise views of its scenic setting, over a lake near the town of Lechlade. The idea was to create the feeling of “living outside on water”.

It even features a basement floor submerged beneath the water’s surface.
