Haaks Opperland Camper looks normal at first, but upon closer inspection, you’ll realize that it’s actually a mini two-story sustainable home on wheels. What about the vehicle? It’s a Fiat Ducato, and yes, it comes with the Opperland camper unit itself. To purchase it outright, you’re looking at shelling out approximately $153K, which includes Netherland’s private motor vehicle and motorcycle tax (BPM) and the European Union’s value-added tax (VAT).

Apple Central World, its second and largest retail location in Thailand, has opened in the heart of Ratchaprasong, Bangkok’s iconic intersection. Aside from its stunning architecture, it features the first-ever all-glass design, housed under a cantilevered Tree Canopy roof. As you step inside, guests can traverse between two levels using a spiral staircase that wraps around a timber core, or by riding a unique cylindrical elevator clad in mirror-polished stainless steel.

Put simply, they are modular floating homes that can easily be setup and transported just about anywhere in the world.
Cave homes and hotels are nothing new, but Grant’s creation was several decades in the making. He first moved to Moab, Utah as a young man, and by 1980, he’d gathered enough money to purchase 40 acres of undeveloped land near Boulder. For the next 25 years, he lived in a trailer without running water or electricity, while learning to grow his own food. As he led horse back riding treks on his land in 1996, he started blasting into the side of a large bedrock.
Star Wars fans have probably seen the Ewok’s Bright Tree Village built around the trees of Endor and situated nearly 50-feet above the ground. If not, this village basically consisted of thatched huts where hundreds of Ewoks lived. Czech architecture firm Formafatal has designed a real-life equivalent, and called it Art Villas Resort.
