If it wasn’t cool enough to be in the Netherlands, situated somewhere on an island in the lake of Loosdrecht, it’s even cooler to be chillin in this Recreational Island House by 2b4-architects.

This completely customized house interacts with the environment in some very impressive ways. On a hot day, the northern facade opens up toward the water while the living room’s wooden floor becomes a jetty. There’s a free hanging fireplace with a lounge area surrounding it, and it can be rotated towards the outdoor terrace when a chill is in the air. Visitors have to walk around the entire house and see it from all angles before they can enter, but when you have a pad this cool, isn’t that the best way to do it?
