This home is located in the picturesque outskirts of Barcelona, right on the hillside in Cabrils. The architects Cadaval & Solà-Morales have built the house in the shape of the letter X by pursuing several design goals: to provide wonderful spectacular valley views, while avoiding looking towards the neighbors. Moreover, this form proved to be very comfortable and unique. When building the house a rare technique was used, which is regularly used for the infrastructural construction such as bridges and tunnels. The use of high-density concrete allowed to create single-sided formwork of high structural resistance which serves as a structural skin. The access to the house is possible from a streetside, located at the top of the two levels. The X house has two floors and parking zone. We suggest you to look at the wonderful views of interiors and exteriors of the home.

Fitzsimmons Architects has created an unique project of psychedelic residence, located in an eclectic neighborhood of Oklahoma City . Called Flaming Lips, this masterpiece is as free thinking and boundary pushing as the art and music of its owners, Michelle Martin-Coyne, a photographer and artist, and her husband Wayne. The project includes the partial refinishing of the main house, and the renovation of an existing garage and storage space into a large family room, and a new master suite including the master bath “dragon egg”. The existing low roof structure of the storage space was removed, making room for a new “fractured plain” roof that floats above a ribbon of clerestory windows. This angular roof cantilevers away from the house off a thin exoskeleton of steel, shading the patio below while still allowing indirect daylight to flood the living space. This connection to the outdoors is further emphasized by a wall of sliding glass doors that open to the outdoor patio and expansive yard. Chaotic, sometimes psychedelic design makes the house unique and not similar to anything else. Via

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).
