    Tunnels and round doors instantly make a space more interesting. I think it’s human nature – when we see one, we automatically want to go through it.

    By the way, have you ever seen Pierre Cardin’s home in Cannes? It was designed by Antti Lovag, and is full of round doors, bubbles, and tunnels.

    Round gates are quite popular in traditional Chinese garden architecture, they are called “moon doors”

    that tunnel doorway is from the from the Michael Arts house in Belgium
    quote from the OWI site :
    “Michael arts, one of the leading figures of Tommy Hilfiger built his own home in the woods, near Antwerp. Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright he designed a house where he retires with his family and friends, inbetween is transcontinental flights. The house is a combination of authentic details, luxury and souvenirs from all over the world.”
