I’ve heard the expression, it’s just “a hole in the wall”, but this house in Vals, Switzerlannd, is certainly different. For sure you are not in view of your neighbours, and you are not disrupting the surrounding landscape. I also wondered what the view out was…
This house is in Trassenheide, Germany, and if you think that it is a stand alone, it isn’t. There are many more such homes in other parts of the world. Why anyone would like to live in a house that appears to be upside down, I don’t know, but if you research it, there are such homes, and people do love them, live in them and enjoy them.
This next picture has nothing to do with houses/architecture, but it is an interesting find. don’t scroll down right away … see if you know what it is.
The above is called a mortdsafe and is a unique Scottish invention. It came about in the 18th and 19th centuries to prevent grave robbing. Scotland was rampant with body snatching, thus a way to crate and deter. Examples have been found close to Scottish medical schools.!!
This delightful build in Tokyo, Japan, is by architect Yasuhiro Yamashita,crowded cities, with small lots means that creativity is a must. Home is where the heart is, home is what you make it. No matter where you live or how you live, it is what or where you chose to be … or why are you there. We can enjoy other landscapes, we can travel the world, we can fly, take boat cruises, there is a lot to see when we venture outside our familiar environments. In the end though, no matter where we land, we are always still ourSELVES. No physical distances or weird and unique inventions will take away the fact, that you are who you are. How you adorn your life, is of no matter, when you look in the mirror, it is YOU, you will see.
Be at peace
Wherever you may be
For it is only in loving me
The me inside of you
that you will find inner peace.
