whether it’s cooking a favorite meal or picking someone up from the airport, romantic gestures come in all shapes and sizes. well, now they also come in the form of a one and half story rotating house thanks to vojin kusic, a 72-year old man who’s designed and built this spinning home for his wife ljubica in northern bosnia.

the unusual architecture project was born from ljubica’s frustration at not being able to see people entering the front yard. this was because vojin had previously remodeled their former home when his wife wanted their bedrooms to face the sun, meaning the living room faced away from the street.


‘I decided to build a new, rotating house so that she can spin it as she pleases,’  vojin told associated press.


located in a rural site in the small town of srbac, the dwelling is mounted onto a concrete plinth and uses electric motors and the wheels of an old military transport vehicle to spin a full 360 degrees. now, vojin can put a rest to his self-taught homebuilding efforts and ljubica can turn the house around as she wants. the front door even rotates too!
