This Home Will Make You Look Twice
At first glance, this woodland home outside Warsaw, Poland, looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. It appears to be just an odd floating box among the trees. But, like many things that are not exactly what they seem, the home is really an optical illusion.
Planning a cross between design ingenuity and a magic trick, the architects at the firm Reform created a house that gets lost in its natural, green surroundings by lining the lower half with large, mirrored panels.
From certain angles, the building recedes into the background, allowing the viewer to truly take in the forest view, even though there’s a boxy house plopped right in the middle of it. We’re impressed, but we do worry about any fast-flying birds that might happen to zip by.
Take a closer look:
