Architect Weichlbauer Ortis designed this wild cubistic house in Frohnleiten, Austria. Then he covered the concrete exterior in faux grass.
Astroturf Covered Concrete House
This crazy looking home was inspired artist MC Escher and then given a dose of kitsch with the addition of faux grass to the exterior.
With staircases that lead to nowhere, jutting columns and window panes placed perpendicular to the windows, it is said that the home’s design was inspired by MC Escher’s famous illusion drawing (shown below).
More photos of the Astroturf Covered Concrete House:
With concrete staircases that seemingly go nowhere, but actually serve as supports, the home is embellished with right angles and large framed windows.
Utilizing unusual elements indoors as well, the home uses a window frame as a staircase banister or railing.
From certain angles, the home is barely distinguishable from its lush surroundings.
