We’re intrigued by the u+a house, a striking home design by Architect Neil Denari and useful + agreeable, a luxury, travel and design tv station and publication. The small, pre-designed hi-rise is the architectural merging of “the desirability and precision engineering of great car design; the exploration and challenge of contemporary art; and the bold expressiveness of avant-garde fashion” (or so u+a’s website says). The house is suited for different climates and housing plans, from small-lot to clusters, as vacation properties or rooftop penthouses, just to name a few uses. Upon first glance, it reminded us of that new-fangled luggage we’ve seen sitting on the baggage carousel (and a little of an airplane lavatory). We’re curious to see how the design translates in the real world – we’ll keep you updated here.
