The ‘Mop House' by AGi Architects is Full of Lines and Curves

The ‘Mop House’ is an inventive creation from the Spanish-Kuwaiti studio AGi Architects. The exterior of the house is made up of steep angles that run into one another to produce sharp contrasts. This gives the structure a vivid definition that is usually absent in more everyday structures.

AGi Architects composed the interior of the house almost entirely from curves. The walls seem to swirl into one another like milk in a tea cup. This is not to say that the design is dizzy or uncoordinated; to the contrary, AGi Architects achieves a harmony in much the same way disparate tones produce a chord. On this note, one could say that the outside of the house is sharp and discordant, while the interior has the reassuring warmth of a major key.
