This is a house, where you feel heavier, when you enter it.
As we are approaching the era, when we will have interstellar
travel and generation ships, this becomes relevant to
how human body reacts to stronger than Earth's gravity,
is the case in some of the planets.
So, this would be a house attached to the end of an extra-large centrifuge,
similar to those that NASA use to train astronauts. Except,
one would be for testing the long-term effects of gravity
larger than that of Earth's on human body.
Presumably, just like we can learn something interesting
people's long-term habitation in 0G environment in ISS, we
should also be able to learn something from a long-term
habitation in environment of greater force field.
To make life more comfortable, this house would be
with all kind of modern life conveniences like you find on
ordinary houses, and would have an elevator, constructed
within the long arm of the centrifuge, with a bending towards
the still center point. This way, exiting the house would be
without stopping the rotation.

||Just jump out of a window ...
||You should read "Great Mambo Chicken and the
Transhuman Condition". He describes, therein, an
experiment in which chickens were raised in a
centrifuge at elevated G. The title of the book is
sort of a spoiler as to the outcome.
||This house would also be good for persons who have had too
much experience with the American high carb junk food diet.
||And then, when their muscles all get used to it, Earth
would feel like a planet with lower gravity?
