Sure, just being able to purchase any kind of home now days is something to boast about, but for those who are very well off, these amazing architectural masterpieces take design to the next level. Continue reading to see five of the coolest homes for geeks (or anyone for that matter).
1. Fortress House
Zombie fighters rejoice! Called “Fortress”, this incredible 6100-square-foot home by architects KWK Promes turns into a impenetrable structure at the push of a button. That’s not all, “entry requires several security codes and even then you are placed into an enclosed concrete bunker before being let in the house.”
2. Sports House
Priced at $3.3-million, this sports house in San Francisco — by the Martin Building Company — “is perfect for the person who loves high ceilings and lots of open space; the roof line is adorned with multiple skylights, including a 16 x 20 foot retractable center skylight that facilitates lots of natural light.”
3. Iron Man House
Remember Tony Stark’s stunning house from the Iron Man movies? Well, it is now on the market for a whopping $25-million. Not just a computer-generated home, the real-life “11,000 square feet luxury mansion comes with 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and private access to Black’s Beach.” Unfortunately, a fully-functional Iron Man suit isn’t included with the house.
4. Villa Amanzi
Situated atop “a 197-foot-high cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea” in Phuket, Thailand, Villa Amanzi by Original Vision is definitely the ultimate dream home for those looking to combine function with form. However, the journey down to get groceries or just to hang out with friends may be another story.
5. Rotating House
Built by Domespace, these incredible and innovative homes feature a rotation system that “helps balance the temperature inside the house, reduce energy consumption, and change the scenery at any time.” Let’s just hope that the next version of this home receives even more high-tech upgrades, like an indoor, solar-heated pool!
