This carousel inspired cottage design redefines what vacation getaways look like. Designed by Dutch design studio Bureau Ira Koer, Merry-Go-Round is a four sided structure intended to provide an answer to 'a different typology for temporary occupation.'
Rather than making it look like a prison cell, the barred architecture gives the holiday home a playful feel. Breaking away from standard cottage design, the rooms are situated in order to make one big square in the middle and all rooms open to a single central hall that wraps around the entire house. This, too, gives the effect of a carousel as the temporary residents have to move in circles to get around. This is in addition to the floor length windows that offer the abode plenty of natural light.
This Playful Holiday Home Architecture Will Leave Your Head Spinning
