House at a Lake by BBSC Architects is the ideal getaway for those stressed out by the troubles of living in an urban environment. This serene vacation spot is located in Belgium, and features numerous glass windows to avoid separating inhabitants from the outside world.
Achieving the "one with nature" goal without having to actually brace for any of the elements is perfectly obtainable here. Glass surrounds almost the entire house from the ground level up, with privacy provided in areas where it's necessary. People can then look out on the lake from the warmth of the interior, or even beat the heat by enjoying the view without stepping outside, depending on the weather and time of year.
