Crazy Astroturf Covered Concrete House In Austria

NOTE: You are on an old site. Find this and all new posts here

With a design seemingly inspired by MC Escher's drawing above, this cubistic freestanding home in Frohnleiten, Austria is literally covered in Astroturf.

With concrete staircases that seemingly go nowhere, but actually serve as supports, the home is embellished with right angles and large framed windows.

Utilizing unusual elements indoors as well, the home uses a window frame as a staircase banister or railing.

From certain angles, the home is barely distnguishable from its lush surroundings:
