To see these unusual houses are worth seeing in new York with the dizzying heights.
For fans of prefabricated homes who choose to rise above the city bustle, perfect project house LoftCube by designer Werner Aisslinger. This project was specifically designed for roofs. The value of the home that was seen on the roof of Williamsburg, only $ 60.000, and its main advantages are fast Assembly and a geodesic dome roof.
