Strange Spacecraft Home Crash Lands, Breaks Open?


The Klein Bottle experimental house design by McBride Charles Ryan started as a sphere but, as is evident from the image above, was radically deconstructed to accommodate the actual spatial needs of the architecture. The remaining pieces of the shell provide some privacy and enclosure to this incredibly funky home design.


This mathematical puzzle theme is carried through the property and into the enclosure and finally the house itself. While the interior is not quite as impressively offbeat as the exterior it does make for a more livable space. The project also includes various green design strategies including gray-water rain storage and solar power. Of course, these are hardly noticeable against the incredibly varied design of the building’s facades and roof.
