The unusual architecture is a response to the requirements to provide privacy from the neighbors and at the same time let in as much light as possible and encompass the views of Sydney Opera and Harbour Bridge. The name of the house comes from the moebius strip, the mathematical surface looking similar to the house’s external shape. shape The complex geometry of this house required the unusual construction process too.
