VW Beetle inspired house and restaurant designs


House is not merely a place to stay or to come back after long working hours at the office. People build houses as a means to create happiness and to enjoy a true familial atmosphere. With many people, house also becomes personal identity. Special impressively designed houses can bring fame and pride to the owners. Therefore, architects have continuously thought of unique and even bizarre house designs. People have seen Zen house, Glass Prefab house, Arched Timber Roof House. Creativity of house designers seems unlimited. They can get inspired from everyday items like a leaf, a telephone, a book or a car. Recently, Car.Das Auto restaurant and the house named Auto Residence which is located in the north of Salzburg, Autria has enchanted visitors and even by-passers with the impressive VW Beetle inspired design. The idea of the design was inspired over a decade ago but it was not until 2003 that the construction of house and restaurant was completed.
