Hanna Billqvist's Designs Give Facial Features to Houses

These designs by Hanna Billqvist play up the facial features of houses. Depending on their placement, sometimes windows can look like the eyes of a house. The 'Ansiktet' collection, meaning "face" in Swedish, gives houses distinctive facial features like eyes and mouths.

Billqvist has designed two window shutters; one with wide open eyes and another with long feminine eyelashes that makes houses look like they are sleeping. Another inventive part of this series is a semi-circular planter box that looks like a giant mouth, complete with big teeth.

These cartoony additions lend instant personality to the exterior of houses and are sure to elicit stares from your neighbors and passersby. The wide-eyed design would be especially hard to miss -- it is almost as if the house is watching you.
