This round house built for a family in Stechovice, Czech Republic (about 45 minutes south of Prague by car) is an attempt to prove that sustainable architecture can still be stylish. But it is also a case where beauty definitely belongings to the eye of the beholder.

Designed by Czech firm Caraa, the wheelchair-accessible courtyard house features open-plan interiors with concrete walls and ceilings and light oak-wood floors, according to Curbed.

The architects used discarded materials like corrugated aluminum in the construction and kept the surrounding land and courtyard garden un-landscaped to keep water use to a minimum. It’s definitely another great experiment in developing sustainable housing
