This is not your typical merry-go-round and it certainly is not your typical vacation getaway. This four-sided structure in the Netherlands is being designed by Bureau Ira Koers, a design studio based in Amsterdam, to be a holiday cottage that breaks away from the style of a standard home. The rooms are arranged to form one giant square in the center, and they all open to a single central hallway that wraps around the entirety of the house. As a result, vacationing residents move around the space like a carousel spinning around in a few laps of circles. The floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding all sides allow natural light to flood into the space while the shutters are there to keep it out if the residents desired. I personally love the appearance of the house at night with the lights on inside and the windows unblocked by the shutters.
