The 'Exploded House' Blasts onto the Turkish Landscape

Gokhan Avcioglu is the architect behind this inventive house which can be found in Bodrum, Turkey. Featuring pools on top of the house, the design of the 'Exploded House' definitely stands out, but somehow appears like it fits perfectly among its surrounding environment.

Rainwater is collected and stored in the pool on the roof. The water then cascades from the roof onto another and is then circulated. This creates a natural cooling system for the hot climate in which the house is located. Badass.

Kudos to Ali Bekman and Ozlem Avcioglu for taking the amazing photographs of the domestic design wonder known as the 'Exploded House.'
