One of the most famous postmodern buildings in the world, the Chiat/Day Building (often called the "Binoculars Building") is part of Google's headquarters in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles. It was created by starchitect Frank Gehry and the pop artists Claes Oldenberg and Coosje van Bruggen.
The corner room of this Swiss penthouse is the perfect lookout point with wall-to-wall windows facing the icy blue lake and mountains covered in vegetation. Subtle details, like puddling curtains and a fur throw, add luxurious touch.
This home office was created using a nook in a hallway, making it the perfect spot for a private writing desk. Antique binoculars create an unusual art display while a traditional side chair upholstered in black velvet provides elegant seating.
If this playhouse doesn't get the kids out of the house, we don't know what will. A small bridge leads to the pint-sized playhouse that features a bird-watching balcony – complete with binoculars – and a slide. The playhouse's gabled roof and intricate woodwork is sure to please the youngest of architects.
Kick back on this cushy sofa and soak up the stunning marsh views just beyond the almost floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors. A window seat awaits the avid bird watcher, or step just outside onto the spacious deck.
