Design Collective: The Integral House, Canada

The team of architects from Shim Sutcliffe were allowed to freely design this amazing house (owned by math professor Dr James Stewart) on the one condition that the design included curves and the professors own concert hall.

We're thinking that the Doc is pretty damn happy with the 150 seater concert hall that now exists in his 18,000 sq foot house- Opera party anyone?
