The St. Joseph House is a Box With Mind-Bending Interiors

Appearing quite boxy on the outside, the St. Joseph House is anything but that in its interior. Taking age-old advice to heart, Wolfgang Tschapeller Architekt literally inverted the concept for this single family home, reinventing the inside of this rectangular shell of a dwelling.

The abstract Austrian abode becomes quite the psychedelic experience within. Completely whitewashed, the walls and ceilings seem to rebel against right angles, true horizontals and verticals at every bend. Leaving occupants with quite a twisted perception of space, the St. Joseph House is an essay on the insignificance of first impressions.
