Architect and artist Adam Kalkin has an expansive imagination, and he wanted to extend this creativity when building his family home to make it feel bigger.
After purchasing a historic 1880s farmhouse in 2001, Kalkin found a brilliant and unconventional way to add more space to his home: by hanging a modern airplane hangar over the entire home.
Here's what the house-within-a-house looks like.
Located in New Jersey, Kalkin's one-of-a-kind home is called "Bunny Lane."
When Kalkin first bought the 1880s farmhouse, he wanted to redesign it in a new way.
"In this case, the approach was not 'How can I modify this? How can I destroy this?'," he explained. "In my case, it was 'how do you encapsulate it?'"
The home is made of three parts: an airplane hangar, concrete-glass container, and antique farmhouse.
Kalkin added and removed pieces of the farmhouse to create the eclectic home.
"All of these together creates a conversation with each other," Kalkin said. "No one thing stands alone; it’s about the relationships and spaces between things.”
