Celine Dion is currently trying to sell her gigantic mansion on Florida’s exclusive Jupiter Island. The huge 5-acre estate, which sits on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, consists of a main home, two guests homes, tennis house/courts, game room, a fully functional water park, and much, much more. With the market for $72 million dollar homes being pretty small, Sotheby’s International Realty company created this epic walk-through video to help sell the place. The soundtrack is the perfect compliment to this over-the-top crib.

LEGO’s latest addition to their Architecture series is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The MBS only opened up back in 2010, but it has quickly become a landmark of Singapore due to its unique and modern design. Other notable architectural structures that have been replicated in LEGO form include the Sydney Opera House, Big Ben, and the White House. The Marina Bay Sands LEGO set will be available at the hotel’s gift shop as well as select retailers in Asia. But if you look around on the internet long enough I’m sure you can find a set for sale.
Frank Sinatra’s New York City Penthouse just recently hit the market. Apparently Frank designed this place himself back in 1961. The place was refurbished back in 2008 and modern additions like the glass staircase, gourmet kitchen, and marble fireplace were added, but other than that it is pretty much the same apartment that Frank called home. It has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, two large terraces, and amazing views of the East River. This is the definition of a bachelor pad. No chick could turn down the opportunity to spend the night at Frank Sinatra’s former place of residence.
Here’s a look at the Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, OR. The guys at Streething recently visited the beautiful campus, and snapped these pics. Working at this place would be absolutely amazing.
This is exactly what my definition of a dream house would be. If you’re a lottery winner and you’re reading this, how dumb are you to not just buy this place and chill out the rest of your life? I’ll tell you, very dumb. If you’re interested in the piece of property, check the real estate listing here.
I rarely want to get out of bed as it is, but man, if I got my hands on this thing it would be a wrap. Check this out, Think Future Design has loaded this canopy with blinds, a pressure-balance bedding system, a state-of-the-art sound system, reading lights, a built-in PC, a gaming and entertainment console, and a home theatre screen that slides down at the foot of the bed. If you’re not sold, then I have no idea what else to say except look at the pictures.
AirBNB just moved their 200 employees into a new office building located in San Francisco. The 1,200 square foot revamped industrial building is the product of the Gensler design firm. Many of the offices are actually replicas of actual rooms that can be rented through AirBNB. The most impressive feature of headquarters may be the 1,200 foot green wall located in foyer.
