Appearances can be deceiving. At first glance, this house seems like a normal barn. But, take a close look at the pictures below. This house’s wooden exterior is really just a shell. The glass portion of the house slides back and forth.

It’s the world’s first sliding house!

Designed by de Rijke Marsh Morgan, a London-based practice, the sliding exterior offers residents the ability to change the look of the building to suit their needs. Want more natural light? Simply “slide” the interior of the house out. Want a cozy and intimate feel? Slide the glass interior of the house back in.

Sound amazing? Don’t take our word for it. Check out the cool pictures below!
