A Home Crafted From 6 Million Glass Bottles, Argentina

Homes made out of interesting and found objects are nothing short of spectacular in so many cases. With thousands of bottle caps to hundreds of thousands of beer cans, unusual building materials have been around longer than we can really keep track of.

For one man in Quilmes, Argentina (just outside of Buenos Aires) having an entire home built from glass bottles is like a little slice of art heaven. Utilizing over six million recycled glass bottles to craft a workshop space for his art, and a three story lighthouse– Tito Ingenieri has been working on this masterpiece for more than 21 years.

Known as “Casa de Botellas,” or “House of Bottles,” this space is filled with tons of treasures and works from Ingenieri including porthole windows, wagon wheels and some interesting art styled furniture and scrap metal turned functional seating. The multiple glass bottle structures make this property all the more interesting for height and overall impact. See what we mean below.
