Barbie Malibu Dream House is a real life 3,500 square-foot house overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California. The interior design by Jonathan Adler, who was commissioned by toy maker Mattel to decorate the house for Barbie’s 50th birthday, is glamourous, chic and colourful. The living room features Barbie furniture and the bedroom has wall-to-wall pink carpeting emblazoned with her initial. The house even comes with a Malibu Barbie VW Beetle Convertible!
Master Builder Markus Voglreiter who earlier designed the “Auto Residence” decided to build a bigger and sportier structure in the form of a restaurant and bar called “The Car. Das Auto”. Located north of Salzburg, Austria, the Volkswagen Beetle inspired restaurant cost approximately €1.6 million to build and was completed in 2007. The interior design is contemporary, and there is also an outdoor patio seating area for locals and tourists to soak up the atmosphere of this cool restaurant.
The “Auto Residence” house located in Gnigi near Salzburg, Austria is a Volkswagen Beetle inspired home designed by Master Builder Markus Voglreiter. The owners bought the original 70’s style house and wanted to renovate and update the structure. The result was this unique transformation into a VW Beetle house which was completed in 2003. Voglreiter would later build a restaurant and bar “The Car. Das Auto” nearby. The “Auto Residence” is an eco-friendly house with energy efficient heating and insulation technology that reduces energy consumption.
