One of the more unusual home I've seen in awhile and definitely one of the coolest. This townhouse in Amsterdam, designed by Faro architects. Designed as an experimental energy efficient home, it was constructed from old docking poles. It's most striking feature is definitely the floating boat-like structure floating above the kitchen. The copper tiles around it were roof tiles salvaged from an old church. The 'boat' combined with the warm wooden interior and the blue colour scheme give it a definite nautical feeling.
