Poetically described as having a curved, "petal-like" facade, this Dutch country home by UNStudio offers panoramic views, spacious rooftops, tinted floor-to-ceiling windows and presumably, a sunny disposition. The roughly 5,600-square-foot family dwelling also serves as a plugged in, energy-efficient demonstration of smart home technology, centrally controlled by a living room touchscreen that adjusts the heating and cooling systems throughout the split-level dwelling, all powered by rooftop solar panels. Seeing as how the building sits on a polder—low lands reclaimed and protected from the sea via a series of dikes—it seems fitting the designers focused on sustainably minded construction.
