    Haddock House by Frank Lloyd Wright is Up for Sale

    A lesser known work by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright located in Ann Arbor, Michigan is now up for sale. It’s called Haddock House, originally designed for a (presumably pretty well-off) schoolteacher in 1938.

    Honomobo HO4+ Shipping Container Home

    Remember in the second season of The Wire when all those girls suffocated in that shipping container?

    If the home at 12 Picket Post Close in Bracknell, Berkshire, England looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw it in the Harry Potter films, where it stood in for Harry’s old house at 4 Privet Drive (you know, the place where his evil aunt and uncle kept him under the stairs).

    Levitation is so hot right now – but if you’re not content with floating trees or chopsticks, you may not be satisfied until you can actually live in a house that floats a few feet above the ground (or appears to, anyway).

    A new residential design from Aibek Almassov of A. Massow Architects gives new meaning to the term “tree house.” That’s because rather than being built in a tree, Tree in the House is built around a tree. Tree in the House was originally commissioned by an investor who since removed his funding from the project, […]

    Oas1s Houses Are Like Modern Tree Houses

    Anyone who’s ever been stuck in traffic or sucked a cubic foot of smog through their lungs has thought about moving out into the woods and living in a more natural environment.
