According to DO Architects, cylindrical housing is the way of the future. Proposed for a seaside site near the Baltic Sea in Svencelė, the Lithuanian practice has developed an experimental neighborhood of 12 single family “rolling homes” that promise seclusion, an uninterrupted connection to nature and three stories of efficiently laid out modern interiors.

“Transparent facades allow for uninterrupted views of the surrounding canals and ensure a strong connection, both visual and physical, between the occupant and nature,” describes DO. “The closed sides of the buildings, however, maintain privacy among neighbors.

“Internal space and natural light are maximized by the expanding cylindrical volume of each house. All of the required conveniences for an exclusive modern lifestyle are provided in the eye catching rolling homes, which combined with their stunning natural location create a desirable place to live.”
