HA! Try saying that twice!!
I was perusing Trendland and came across an article about a super interesting house that I just had to share with all of you.  It is by the Dutch design studio Denieuwegeneratie and is called their Dutch Mountain House.  Not only is the architecture of the house incredibly interesting visually with it's prismatic angles and sheet glass facade, but it is eco friendly.  Embedded into the site, the house sits almost completely underground allowing the surrounding earth to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  And the large glass walls we see are great for the view, but they also allow sun to warm the concrete structure as an added source of heat.  The interior is open, modern and playful and the coolest part - they have converted an old jaguar into a bookshelf! Hope you all love the design and details as much as I do.

  1. The interior is very surprising - I really like it, especially the car hung on the wall!
