Top Gear Must-Haves for an Extraordinary Home

This is a guest post from Antonina of OpenBuildings. This month the team behind OpenBuildings has a brand new invite-only site and brand new content to share with you from the sister site! Below you will not only see the normal selection of great architecture but also also links to thematic selections of inspirational content, which might help you start your very own design project and get matched with design professionals.

Have you ever imagined what it could be like if you had never seen anything anyone else had in their house but could do anything you can think of?  Here is a selection of some top gear you might need in order to create an unusual but highly original and fun-filled home. Your kids would adore it too!
