Maaaaaybe I don't need a huge futuristic house on a cliff. Maybe I just need a little shack on the beach, where you can eat fresh seafood and enjoy simple life. Like this little place built on a rock, in Zanzibar.
To get in or out of this house—which is actually a tiny restaurant—you will either have to swim or wait until the low tide, so you can walk in. Once you are inside, the owner—a local fisherman—will bring you the catch of the day from the grill to the table. Things don't get better than that. And that's exactly where I want to be right now.
