Winy Maas goes domestic:

Wonderful things happen when you’re friends with Winy Maas. He redesigned and expanded a house for a family in Rotterdam to aleviate a space crunch.

It’s too blue on the outside for my taste, but it’s lovely on the inside where it counts. With the exception of an aqua roof, I love this house. The levitating helix-like staircases (there are three from each bedroom) lead up to the roof. It’s so stunning. This looks like a bookish little kid’s dream.

I had an earlier post about Maas (who has earned some comparisions to Rem Koolhaus) and his obsession with stacking stuff. Usually, he designs looks a little industrial but here the stacking tendency manages to be both efficient and quaint.
