We've noticed something of a vogue for gorgeous wood-lined interiors and this gorgeous Italian pad follows suit. Designed by Christian Schwienbacher, this outwardly-modest house features a unique interior: multiple split-level floors—outfitted with minimalist and mid-century modern furniture—cascade almost thirty feet upwards. Titled House P, its M.C. Escher feel was very deliberate: according to the architect, "the staircase from one floor to the next [does] not appear too long thereby obtaining a continuous spaciousness." That's just archi-speak for "climbing the stairs will never be boring again." The interior's mesmerizing look is amplified it total covering in softwood punctuated by thin strips of windows carefully slipped between the wooden panels.
