Have you ever dreamt about architecture or special kinds of spaces - as spaces? I often do, it's very common, I think.
Last night, two new houses came to me in a rather uncomplicated dream, which I will not describe. The buildings may have some interesting properties, which is why I have put them
Ein Haus is a large glass disk that will be built on a green pasture, close to the sea, near a cliff. Like on the coast of South England or Ireland.
The house would gently turn with the wind. It shows some kind of 'tension' and 'balance'. When I looked at it in my dream, for some strange reason I said: "Ein Haus".
Zwei Haus is especially good if you go out shopping, like I did after visiting Ein Haus. I had just bought basic groceries and walked home with my bag.
Arriving at my home, I took the stairs that guide you alongside the wall to Zwei Haus.
When I reached the little terrace, I looked out over the suburb where the house is built, and I said: "Zwei Haus".
Please find the designs in the links. They are not inventions, just idiosyncratic creations that can be baked further, but they do contain some new concepts!!
I prefer Ein, but maybe Zwei is more funny!

Ein Haus with view
Think of django's Ein Haus on its side jutting out of the canyon wall... [Canuck, May 25 2007]
Habitats in dreams can spawn some interesting anno strings...

I saw a doco about this building, and remembered [django]s dream house. [neutrinos_shadow, Feb 16 2011]
||Right, so ein haus is fun for windy days. If the zwei haus wall runs east-west, and you're not too near the equator, that gives you some useful shade on sunny days. And for wet days?
||Intriguing. [+] for you, and for [pertinax] too.
||The next house on from [pertinax]'s is home to people with phobias of various kinds - they all live in vier.
||And the fünf air is always refreshing.
||And it gets even better next door.
||Are you sure you hadn't watched "The Thirty-nine Steps" as well? That's how many stairs you show going up to Zwei Haus. I couldn't deal with that many stairs. Of course Ein Haus has even more. Maybe I'll wait for a horizontal version of Ein Haus that's installed along the lines of the link. That would be some kind of view! I can imagine it would freak out your cat so it would run away and never come back.
||So, neutrinos_shadow: they stole my design. I will file damage claims. It seems like they're rich. I will go for some millions.
||Actually you could probably bluff yourself a few thousand.
