The “Invisible House”, an ultramodern accommodation with a fully mirrored exterior, is the original idea by filmmaker Chris Hanley (best known as the producer behind American psychopath and The suicide virgins) and Tomas Osinski, a collaborator of Frank Gehry. The the design is inspired by the monolithic skyscrapers of New York City, with a touch of Andy Warhol, the man who initially inspired Hanley and his wife to buy land and see it as uninterrupted art.
