The Human Tetris -- play along at home!



Found by Kandi, whose theory is that the designer of this home is a big fan of Japanese game shows:

imagine if those walls are actually moving..

..and they would throw you out of your house if you don't 'shape up'..

Wow...some people's sense of design is very very interesting.

It's giant mushrooms!!!

Rebekah said...

i don't know... reminds me more of the 1up mushrooms from mario games

It's the schroom room!

Kelly Taylor said...

It looks like a Super Mario Brothers' "magic mushroom!"

Anonomystyc said...

Well that's something you don't see everyday.

Deb Clague said...

One's impression on this design is very reflective of what generation they belong to...I, too, think it resembles the "1-Up" mushrooms in Super Mario. : )

Jean said...

I went old school: the vintage Centipede game.

This house would be great for drug dealers, pot plants lining the mushroom-shaped doorways.

I'm just wondering how many minutes it will take me and my chainsaw to fix that little problem...

No-sister said...

My question is... what do they use the space in between the walls for?

Sara said...

I will always come to you before I buy a house =D

Suzanne said...

I have to agree with that theory! How does one decorate around a doorway like that???

Lirael said...

I'm laughing so hard I can't breathe! I think it looks like a one of those mushrooms I saw the other day in the front yard.

When I looked at it, I immediately thought "this was built in the early 1920s". This is the pseudo-Arab style so popular in the pre-Depression era and which led to all those Valentino sheik movies.

Those doors probably lead to a hallway that runs from the front door to the back through the centre of the house - another common feature of that time.

I don't think I could jump through that.

The Tetris cutout is pretty big. That's cheating.

Colin McNamara said...

Actually, it's more likely that this is inspired by local ancient Native American ruins. One of the common features of Anasazi ruins in the area are T-shaped doorways, and this looks reminiscent of that.

That doesn't make it any stranger, perhaps, but I can understand the influence, at least.
