Today we will bring you in Australia to discover some of the most extravagant houses all over the world.
Two hour drive from Melbourne you can find the Mornington Peninsula, a paradise of peace where citizens love to escape during the weekend. Among the coral sea, the dunes and tea plants is hidden an unique house: the Klein Bottle House. The two creators were inspired by the Klein bottle mathematical model and starting from that they made an “origami” version of this model. This is not just a simple house but almost a sculpture.
Moving to Wingham, 250 km away from Sydney, you will discover that you can see the sunrise and the sunset from the same window, or wake up every day with a different view. How is it possible? Thanks to the house designed by Luke Everingham! An octagonal building built on a turntable platform, powered by a system, that allows a rotation of
360 ° in just 30 minutes.
Not enough sunlight in the backyard? Just rase it up one level more. This is what thought Andrew Maynard when he had to rethink a house in the north of Melbourne. A multifunctional box houses the kitchen and the hall, nodal centers of the house, leaving to the existing building the only mission of hosting the sleeping area.
Our tour ends in Victoria where the Dome House rised up. The house is made by a copper sphere that seems buried in the ground from which some sections, like a puzzle, were removed. The different living spaces are all articulated around the garden, which remains the main element of the house.
Our travel doesn’t finish here! Stay tuned to discover more of the most strange and unbelievable houses of the world! See you at the nex post.
