A Home With A Historic Façade And A Surprising Interior

When you first lay eyes on a building that has a façade like this home has, with a historic look and intricate architecture, you definitely don’t imagine the interior being modern and colorful. But, as it turns out, the interior doesn’t always have to match the exterior. In the case of this home, it definitely doesn’t.

This is a house full of contrasts. It all starts on the exterior. It seems like a historic home but it’s not. That’s because Melbourne based Nixon Tulloch Fortey Architecture has created an extension for the house and this has changed everything. The clients wanted to preserve the façade just for the visual effect and also to emphasize the contrast. As you step inside, a whole different décor awaits you. You can find an open plan living area that’s been decorated with bright and vibrant colors. In fact, the bold colors are part of the overall design and they can be seen in all the rooms.

Cool 10 Buildings With Funny Face Expressions

Today we’ve decided to take a more relaxed approach on the subject and we just found the perfect idea for this article. We’ve discovered a series of buildings which have quite interesting facades. We’re not talking about style or design but about their faces.

While the shape of the windows is quite elegant and beautiful, the house tends to seem a little evil

As a kid, the first image that came to my mind when I wanted to draw something was a house. I would make the base, then the roof and I would make the windows resemble two eyes and the door a mouth. As it turns out, there are actual buildings that feature the same characteristics. Of course, this resemblance is most likely unintentional.

The artist has created the homes of Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, the ones we’ve seen at both the beginning and the end of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit tales. These tiny hobbit houses feature amazing details and an intricate design. They actually look like the houses described in the books and presented in the movies.
