For more information on this amazing home check out:
Dome House, Melbourne, Australia described this house as a "strange spaceship home crash lands, breaks open?"  That's one great way to describe it, but according to the architect firm's website, the design was actually based on the "conception of a giant puzzle whose components ranged from the large to the infinitesimally small."  By removing parts of the dome shape and leaving other fragments, you really get the feeling of a giant puzzle.  The "fragments" contain a garden shed, a seat, letterbox and cellar.

 The puzzle effect continues throughout the home.

Wow, very cool home. They must have a lot of people wanting to pop by and have a look at it. I guess that is expected to happen when you have such a unique home.

That is a beautiful house.  Did you take those photos yourselves?  I'm sure they're not copyrighted by a photographer or anything like that . . . nah.  {rolling eyes} They're on the Internet, everything on the Internet is up for grabs.  Screw copyright infringements and using it for business promotions on your real estate blog.   Great job!!

Hi Andrew!  I know it's on our ever growing list of homes we would love to see!

Hi Carla, that's such a tricky one isn't it?  We try to make sure any time we use any pictures they are always credited back to their original source.

Hi Jeanne, Ralph & Debbie!  I love puzzles and find this home fascinating, expecially how they used the blocks in the interior design.  I would love to live in this one too!
