In the market for a studio-slash-home in Rotterdam? Good news: Studio Rolf.fr's award-winning Black Pearl is up for grabs. (The Dutch designer is, thankfully, not closing up shop, but working hard on a new home). The workshop sits on the ground floor of the 1,600-square-foot, 100-year-old house and the top two floors are living space (filled with Rolf's own quirky furniture, natch). There's a hot tub and greenhouse on the roof, and the side elevation of artificial grass makes for a stark contrast with the black-painted facade (designed in collaboration with Utrecht-based Zecc Architects). We assess property values about as well as we dance the samba, but we're thinking the price tage of EU289,000 (roughly $380,000) ain't so bad.
