House in the Netherlands by Rocha Tombal Architecten

p p A project by Rocha Tombal Architecten , this house seems to be the product of “sculpting” aside from being of an architectural value. The exterior design looks almost surreal with its windows “coming out” of the actual building. The unexpected architecture is also reflected in the original interior design. Rooms are given an unusual touch, walls don’t end where you would expect them to, which is why furniture had to be “adapted”. Due to the fact that the house is surrounded by a vast green space, almost every room has a beautiful view of the so called “garden”. Link here. p p p
