A home in East Hampton, one of the country’s Top 10 Weird but Wonderful Homes

A three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in East Hampton home, the country’s first example of “reversible destiny architecture,” has been named one of the country’s Top 10 Weird but Wonderful Homes, by TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. The $4 million, 3,700-square-foot house — which was built as an extension to a 1964 home based on principles of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture — was designed by architects Arakawa and Madeline Gins, whose philosophy is “to disorient the occupants while at the same time keep them challenged and alert for a long life,” according to Newsday. “This great dwelling is a synthesis of architecture, philosophy, art and science,” said listing agent Ursula Reimann of Sotheby’s International Realty. Other weird homes on the list included a coral castle in Florida, a quasi-museum in Nevada, a foam home in Minnesota and an Earthship home in New Mexico. [Newsday]
