Masculine Style Meets Off-Grid Living In This Unique House That Goes Where You Do

Most people don’t fit into a definable box. You may wear suits to the office but spend your weekends mountain climbing. Maybe you tend to kick back with takeout in front the of the TV but also like indulge in gourmet meals. iO House recognizes this juxtaposition in all of us and has created a one-of-a-kind home that can be parked anywhere and has all the luxury and style of a contemporary city dwelling.

The SPACE, by Swedish design firm iO House, is an off-grid home that lets you live where you want, how you want. The structure was designed to be easily transportable so you can relocate whenever the mood strikes you. Park in the mountains for a winter of skiing or lakeside for a summer of fishing. The self-contained home is fully equipped with water, electricity, and heating, and it’s all controlled via an app on your smartphone or tablet. Sustainability was a key component when iO House was developing The Space. Solar panels power the home and natural materials like wood, metal, and wool were used throughout.


iO House thought of everything when creating The Space. The interior comes with a fully furnished bedroom, living room, and dining area. The high-end contemporary pieces create a beautiful minimalist space — the perfect, move-in ready bachelor pad. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, refrigerator, cooktop, and coffee maker. Though small, it’s just enough to whip up a gourmet meal. Walls of glass in the main living area ensure that wherever you park your Space, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views of your surroundings.

We’ve seen many versions of the moveable home in recent years and we love the freedom of being able to live anywhere while connecting with nature. Most of these homes are designed to become one with their surroundings, but The Space was created with style in mind and, as such, stands out like a piece of art wherever it’s placed. Everything from the sleek exterior to the minimalist interior speaks to the masculine feel you want for your home. The Space lets you make the most of living off the grid while still indulging in the luxuries you expect from a high-end apartment in the city.

From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by.

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.
