The 'Elastica' Residence is Made with a Fluid Design

The Elastica residence in Bangalore, India, looks like it could be the set of the next big Sci-Fi thriller. The home's curving, fluid interior has no corners, making it look like a design that slowly melted over time to result in a futuristic living space.

Built by Cadence Architects, the Elastica residence is a single continuous loop that rises from the ground floor up to the fourth storey. To achieve this unbroken effect, the architects used acrylic and ferroconcrete. These materials are highly plastic and mold easily, lending themselves to such an elastic design.

The exterior facade of the residence is no less curvaceous, with a swooping black glaze that could very well have been dreamed up by Salvador Dali. Though primarily relying on a stark black and white color scheme, the house also incorporates touches of green for the kids' room and on the roof with Astroturf.
