Many cars aim to offer a living room feel. Thanks to House33, Renault's Symbioz actually serves as one. Designed as part of a 2016 Renault competition for automotive architecture, it incorporates the car directly into the design, allowing it to serve as an extension of the living room, a quiet room (with the doors closed), or as a rooftop hangout courtesy of a lifting platform. The home's open-plan layout also incorporates a traditional living room and kitchen on the ground floor, with a bedroom and bathroom above. Custom lighting inside the tower housing the lift creates a star-like effect at night, making the image of a car sitting on the roof all the more striking.
