The Lanfranco Pollini 'Villa al Mare' is designed with unusual angles and offbeat details that make this one stellar modern home. Situated in Lignano Pineta, Italy, the residence uses a stacked design to maximize land space without sacrificing essential outdoor features.

The most eye-catching detail in this angular abode is the above-ground swimming pool with its transparent side window. The framed structure acts as a focal piece for the outdoor dining space, situated on the bottom level. While the warm, slatted exterior may look like wood, the dwelling is in fact covered in corten steel. The playful sloped design continues inwards, where guests can enjoy the view from unusually peaked windows and rooms.

If you love eccentric and peculiar architecture, the Lanfranco Pollini Villa al Mare is sure to please your idiosyncratic hearts.
