Portuguese architect Bernardo Rodrigues designed the Flight of Birds House, a project that looks as though it sprang from the pages of a Dr. Seuss storybook.

Located in the Azores' São Miguel Island, this totally abstract abode features a lighthearted interplay of straight lines against curved forms, and bright colors juxtaposing pale neutral hues.

The frame of the building is defined by a pair of perpendicular planes: one extends vertically, and the other horizontally. An undulating U-shaped mass carves out a string of stairs and living spaces, touching down to ground level before scooping up towards the sky. The rooms within the quirky residence take on truly unique shapes in every dimension. The Flight of Birds House is the definition of playful design.
