Architect Alexander Diem has worked on a house in Austria, creating quite the intricate display of handy-work and patience. The facade is patterned with the utmost detail, like something one would see at an art gallery instead of on the side of one's home.

DesignBoom states that "from a distance the building’s distinctive façade is reminiscent of a Chinese folding screen, while a closer look identifies the cut-out cavities as motifs that symbolize food and the harvest." Moreover the outside can be opened when the residences would like more light or air to flow through the house, depending on their preference.

Overall the house is extremely artistic, as even the inside of the abode features detailed designs that the owners can appreciate on a daily basis.
