Some of us may already have imagined our dream homes from an early age. Whether it is a sprawling castle with a moat (and a resident pet dragon) or a simple hole in the wall (hats off to the Hobbits here), you may need inspiration should you suddenly decide you are one of the lucky ones who are able to construct your ideal habitat. Here are some examples you may want to peruse before realizing your home design fantasies:
1. Reversible Destiny Lofts – Tokyo, Japan
The name may be a mouthful to pronounce but the sheer vibrancy and creativity of this residence never fails to amaze. The brainchild of Shusaku Arakawa and Madeleine Gins, both architects based in Tokyo, Japan, the Reversible Destiny Lofts is not just eye candy. The 9-unit rainbow-colored complex was constructed to simulate its inhabitants, mentally and physically. This is achieved through its amusingly bright colors, hard-to-reach power outlets and switches, uneven flooring and irregularly shaped living spaces.
