Pic of the Day: Rubber House


It’s a simple enough concept: A tiny, rectangular building made entirely out of rubber that you enter through a simple slit on one side. There’s a window and a built-in bench inside this structure designed for “quiet contemplation, meditation, and an escape from the outside world.” Created by Amsterdam’s Zeinstra van Gelderen Architecten, its exterior reminds us of both a gummy eraser and a slab of cheese, while the interior is positively womb-like. But, perhaps because it’s early on a Monday morning and we’re still slap-happy from the weekend, we really can’t get over this image of the Rubber House with sheep. Click through for close-ups and interiors of this bizarre and delightful structure.
