The popular video game Tetris captivates users as they rotate different blocks and units until they fit together to form lines and geometric shapes.
Now, one architecture firm is bringing the concept of Tetris to a whole new level, by designing a home that can be rotated and reconfigured as the homeowner desires.
House Shapeshifts With The Seasons
Designed by architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars, the Tetris House from Universe Architecture is a modular home made of blocks that can fit together in many different ways.
The blocks are placed next to each other or piled on top of each other, but the concept also allows owners the option to change the layout of their home if they wish.
On average, the Tetris House is 1,884 square feet, but with additional blocks, can be larger. And although the firm believes homeowners will opt for the units to remain in one place for the most part, the slots can be moved around and slotted back together fairly easily with the help of a crane.
There's also an option to attach accessories -- such as shutters or balconies -- to the outside of the house.

The firm says the first Tetris House will be available at below the local unit price per square foot, due to the home's simplistic design, but no price has been revealed yet.
According to Gizmag, there's also the possibility that the first Tetris House, which is now ready for production, will be self-sufficient in terms of energy use.
