This building look sort of like an optical illusion, right? Well, this nice looking structure, located in Izola, Slovenia, is actually affordable housing for young families and couples. The building, designed by Ofis Arhitekti, was nominated for a Mies van der Rohe award last year. It contains 30 units of various sizes ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments.
The apartments are small, given that the investors aimed to construct this as low budget housing. The main purpose of the trapezoidal-shaped balconies is to offer a nice view directly to the sea even when the blinds are closed.
