Inspiration can come from the oddest places, and the architectural world is no exception -- especially with snail-inspired abodes like the 'K' House by 3LHD Architects. While the snail resemblance isn't instantly seen by just looking at this spectacular abode, a closer look at the architectural plans reveals the alleged snail touches.
The K House follows a spiral interior design, as the house twists around a common axis known as the central atrium. The K House is located in Zagreb, Croatia and takes advantage of natural light through its floor-to-ceiling windows, spiral staircase and spacious rooftop patio.
Implications - Citing unusual inspirations can be a clever way for a company to gain unique appeal and attract consumer buzz. While a product doesn't necessarily have to directly resemble a company's inspiration for it, a special story can be given to back up the business' thought process to consumers.
