You think the housing market here in Los Angeles is a headache? How about housing that literally can make your head spin? The Reversible Destiny Lofts of Tokyo were purposely designed to force inhabitants to call upon on their senses to navigate through uneven flooring, brightly coloured rooms (Fall Colors inspiration!), irregular entries and exits and power switches/outlets located in hard to reach spots (an East Hampton residence by the same architect couple was highlighted at ATNY months ago) . And people are actually paying premium dollars to live somewhere like this! Take a peek of a video of the otherworldly housing under the jump...
The design philosophy behind the Reversible Destiny Lofts was recently reported by the NY Times; the idea behind this sort of surreal architecture is the inhabitants will become stronger mentally and physically, due to the challenging nature of the interior landscape. We're not so sure about it, but it makes for some exciting and interesting rooms that remind us a kid's imagination gone wild...we certainly wouldn't mind staying in for a week or two.
