FOVEA architectrs - crooked house

The unusual design of this Swiss home, by FOVEA architects, was developed as a way of balancing the need for both privacy and light, with the pained pine planks allowing it to blend in with the rural architecture of the area. While from the side and back, the crooked house appears non-descript and slightly imposing, I like that the 40 degree angle of the top floor makes it appear to be slightly bending in on itself, giving the house a surprisingly welcoming appearance.
