World-renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei designed one retreat in the United States and it’s a minimalist showpiece HQ that feels like home. The Tsai House by Weiwei and Swiss firm HHF Architects sits in Ancram, New York and looks like a simplistic abstract figure on the outside and a cozy modern home inside.

Described as “livable art,” this luxury home is an angular gray structure features four corrugated iron-clad cubes linked together by several passageways. Inside you’ll find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, and a living space with a Frank Gehry-designed Cloud pendant lamp. You can enjoy the views of the surrounding lush greenery thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and warm up by the fireplaces in the master suite and living room. The 37.5-acre property also has a Y-shaped maroon guest house and a rectangular pool where you can take a dip and enjoy the incredible views of the Catskill mountains. The artistic luxury house will cost you a cool $5,250,000.

Purchase: $5,250,000
