This unique, open plan kitchen in Victoria, Australia is so open that the countertop is integrated directly into the staircase. The Tattoo House by Andrew Maynard Architects implemented many multi-functional and dual-purpose elements into a flexible living space — but this countertop/stair is probably the most divisive...

Does this design bother you? Would you embrace it and perform a countertop dance? Would it encourage you to keep a no-shoes policy? If you have pets, we can see how this design could be a huge problem...

The Tattoo House has more unique elements and design solutions — including the patterned windows that give the house its name. Check out the plans and many more pictures at Arch Daily.
