Although the FIFA World Cup is over, Johannesburg, South Africa has more beautiful design up its sleeve in the ‘Lulu Kati Kati’ by Kate Oteen Architects. “Lulu Kati Kati” means “Pearl in the middle” in Swahili.

The very top level of this green home features sleeping and resting areas. The middle leads to the courtyard and contains the kitchen. The best part of the ‘Lulu Kati Kati’ by Kate Oteen Architects, however, is its basement level, which is “cave-like, anchored to the rock and the earth.” Another cool feature to look for in this house are its unusual 'wing-wongy' windows.
