While DC doesn’t have many homes with sweeping views, city dwellers do love the sights that come with living life up high. But single-family homes rarely rise higher than two or three levels, so apartments and condos seem to have the monopoly on good views.
Inspired by some of San Francisco’s modern dwellings, Dutch architect Hans van Heeswijk has come up with a modern, modular single-family home that is much, much taller than it is wide, reported Atlantic Cities.
The so-called Meandering Tower House offers buyers several modular options, like sleeping levels, lounging levels and working levels, that can be stacked on top of each other, and the window-heavy design allows inhabitants to take in the sights.
Apparently, the plans are still in a design phase. What do readers think of this modern take on family-sized homes?
