Not even really sure how to describe this. I guess it sort of looks like someone built a house on top of a tribeca apartment building. What I CAN be sure of is that its pretty awesome. I’d probably change the artwork in the bathroom, but other than that: I’d live there.

I seem to have an obsession with lego, and have written here before about interesting ways people use lego to create art. Well this raises that to an new level of imagination.
