Sitting at the edge of a 70-meter high cliff above the Pacific Ocean in Dover Heights, a very beautiful and modern house was designed by Durbach Block Architects. Clear geometric forms, the use of black metal supports in conjunction with the natural terrain of rock and masonry, create an interesting contrast and turn this house in unique house. Interiors are very light. Glass walls allow to maximize views of the ocean, which owners can enjoy almost everywhere. According to the architects they were inspired by Picasso art during the work. You can imagine that it was difficult to create house in this site, but the result is really excellent.
The Klein bottle is a well-known and interesting surface similar to the Mobius strip. In mathematics, the term means a closed nonorientable surface (a two-dimensional manifold) with no identifiable “inner” and “outer” sides. Ideas of the German mathematician Felix Klein intrigued architects from Charles Ryan McBride who wanted to create something unique. The result is original, futuristic Klein Bottle House, located near Melbourne, Australia. It revolves around a central courtyard, a grand regal stair connecting all the levels. Also you may notice origami stylization. Despite the complete creative freedom, inspired by the mysticism of mathematics, there are usual rectangular rooms inside for comfortable living. The House has won many prestigious awards including World Best House 2009 (World Architecture Festival), Best International Home 2010 (Grand Designs).
This unique house is located 12 feet up in Mandeville Canyon. Its very small and occupies only 170 square feet, but provides a wonderful rest and breathtaking view of the Getty Center and downtown Los Angeles.

This unique house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. It was built as a summer residence and blends with the landscape greatly. Truth to say, it’s difficult to imagine that modern comfortable house could be situated on a terrain surrounded by rocks, but the designers from Jarmund / Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL have implemented this idea. The house and terrace are partly built upon existing stone walls, other parts of the walls are made of stones from the blasting on the ground. The exterior is clad in wood and stone. As a whole, the house impressed us by its contemporary look, stylish pool and terrace which offer fascinating views of the water and rocks.
Could you imagine your own town in the house? This unique idea was realized by Suppose design office in Buzen, Japan. Architects offered to turn links and routes between rooms into streets and squares. It creates a magnificent effect changing the habitual relationships inside-outside. The house composed of individual cubes for the kitchen, bathroom, living rooms and bedroom. But the most unusual look was achieved using a glass roof. So you can see stars at night and sunlight during the day. Children will be happy to walk and play in the house like this. To my mind this house is cool and has its originality of design.
