These 'Rolling Homes' Are Exactly What They Sound Like

In the town of Svencelė, Lithuania, a prospective home buyer must not only choose between one bedroom or a studio, laundry onsite and off, but also rolling and non-rolling. Welcome to the future, where architecture borders on sorcery and "Rolling Homes" are a very real possibility.

The forward-thinking minds of architecture firm DO Architects have created a cluster of 12 single family homes, located by a lagoon next to the Baltic Sea. The cylindrical nature of the homes maximizes both the internal space and the natural light. The tubular dwellings resemble massive, enclosed hamster wheels, with transparent facades fully opened up to the surrounding canals and natural sights. However, the enclosed sides of the buildings offer privacy between the rolling residents and their neighbors. You know what they say, what happens in a rolling home stays in a rolling home.

Take a look at the futuristic abodes below and let us know if you'd trade your current pad for a rolling one in the comments.
