Another World and its houses

Apples of Aeden the epic now has an exciting offshoot: the study and replication of Aedenyan architecture! This model I’m working on (excuse the roughness but I had to share now) is the first attempt to materialise it here on Edartha… A traditional Aedenyan starfish-shaped cottage. More to come I hope! These will soon start appearing on Earth, the Lady willing. A good complement to the Hobbit style I think. An Elvish influence as well…

  1. Hi Peter

    A beautiful design. It looks organic ­ the starfish or mushroom shape. And quaint.

    I will continue to challenge you, though, on the PRACTICAL reasons for the design features. EG there is no eave, so I presume it doesn¹t rain much. And the ceiling is high ­ is there a mezzanine or attic floor ­ and why? Is there ANY feature of the design that you can explain as having practical roots, or is it simply the synchronicity of the starfish shape?

    I believe that if you are going to develop other buildings, vehicles, furniture, clothing, jewellery ­ it all needs to have some aspects (design or materials) which reflect its history.

    Offered in love. I hope you¹re well.

    • Hi brother knight, thanks for your appreciation of the form. The starfish is one of the most beautiful shapes in nature I think. And yes special to aeden, the starfish isle. But there are practical reasons for the shape too- the scallops allow for more views out side windows and light on three sides for all outer rooms. Possibly dormer windows for the central one. Higher roof with central hearth gives a spacious, centred, cavelike feel… a temple of extended family domesticity… a farmhouse kitchen.. Actually the eaves at entrance make a porch. Eaves elsewhere could be a bit wider but the arm walls are low so they don’t warrant a big overhang – plaster of aeden is good and weather resistant!
