Klein Bottle House

From comes this radically designed house...

"Is it a bottle in front of me, or a frontal lobotomy? Anyway you look at this mind blowing wonder of math and the space-time continuum, the Klein Bottle House by architects McBride Charles Ryan, is stunning. For us right-brain thinkers; in Mathematics, the “Klein Bottle” is a non-orientable surface, i.e., a surface (a two-dimensionaltopological space) with no distinction between the “inside” and “outside” surfaces. That being said and hopefully understood, this vacation home located just a few clicks outside Melbourne, Australia beautifully reflects a deep desire to mess with both sides of our brains. By constantly challenging our sense of perception, depth, linear orientation, interior/exterior space and pretty much any notion of what a dwelling should look like, the architects have successfully created a space that is surprisingly inviting and warm. Now can someone please show me to the door?"

All I can say is, "Wow, when can I move in?"

Inside out is right! LOL! It is interesting, but I can understand why it is a vacation home, not an every day 'living' one!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

I'm confused. Will the bathroom demand the skills of a contortionist?

It certainly defies convention. I wouldn't want to live in it unless I had a really high fence all around.

nanc: You must prefer right angles then, over obtuse or acute ones. Come to think of it, right angles do have a nice ring to them ;-)

What the heck just happened? That last anonymous comment was mine!

Sorry cube, that house just doesn't do it for me.
Give me an old Australian Colonial homestead any day!
Besides, I'd be a bit worried about making it to the bedroom after a couple of beers!
I don't like sharp corners either Nanc.

yhtak: lol! I hear you.

nanc: I'm personally annoyed by spheres. They roll around & never stand still ;-)

jen: I know, but building it must've been a daunting experience.
