'Rode House' is Arranged in a 180-Degree Semicircle

It isn't often that home designers stray beyond the standard of four straight walls and a roof, but 'Rode House' shows that when they do, the results can be striking. The home, which was designed by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen, curves dramatically, forming a 180-degree semicircle from end to end.

Rode House's shape isn't an arbitrary examination of form; its bend has a distinct purpose. The home sits atop a hill with a similarly semicircular shape, so in order to fulfill the client's size request, the architects needed to get creative with its shape. Thus, Rode House's layout was settled upon.

Aside from the curve, Rode House also has a unique asymmetrical roof that's invisible from one side of the home and a dominating inward slope from the other side.
