Axis Mundi architecture office proposed interesting concept for the future homes. House of the future, called Polyhedra House is placed on the cliffs of Palisades Park in New Jersey. The house would offer an incredible views across the Hudson River and challenge gravity laws.


"The Palisades are a line of steep cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York in the United States. The cliffs stretch north from Jersey City to near Nyack, New York. They rise nearly vertically from near the edge of the river and are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a canyon of the Hudson River north of Fort Lee, as well as providing a vista of the New York City skyline.

Starting with a vertical rectangle of tower form, a design is carved out based on various framed views, topological considerations, and the sun's path through the sky. The final design is revealed as a crystalline asymmetrical polyhedron.

The ground floor level contains the main living space which includes kitchen, dining and living areas. A staircase leads to bedrooms above and a small terrace. The interior is white"
