Bioscleave House Life Extending Villa – Easthampton, NY

Price: $4M
Bed: 3 Bath: 2 Sq ft: 3,700

Claim to Fame: The first U.S. example of reversible destiny architecture, or “architecture against death”

About: This house was designed with the goal that the occupants be disoriented, uncomfortable, and thrown off balance, because, the thought goes, when you get comfortable, death is not far behind. The thinkers behind this “life-affirming environment” are the artist-poet-architect/ husband-and-wife team Arakawa and Madeline Gins, who said they decided not to die. This “life-affirming” was part of their plan to cheat the fate that awaits everyone else. Arakawa died in May of 2010.

Built as an extension to a 1964 A-frame house based on principles of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, Bioscleave House also comes with its own set of directions for use.
