Do Not Flip This House!


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.
