Do Not Flip This House!
Read Full Story
This Australian beach house was named the best house in the world at this year's World Architecture Festival
in Barcelona. While we're not going to go quite that far in our accolades, it is pretty flippin' sweet looking, and not far from the city of Melbourne or the nearby beach.
Designed by McBridge Charles Ryan, it is known as the "Klein Bottle
" House, referring to a type of geometric object with no edges.
It was a big year for Australian designers, taking three of the top prizes.

Award-Winning Design: Klein Bottle House
This house by McBride Charles Ryan has been honored as the world's best home at this year's World Architecture Festival Awards. Located in Australia's Mornington Peninsula, the holiday home features a living room perched on a canopy of trees, and celebrates the country's traditional beach houses, while still functioning as a practical 21st century home.
