Calling all thwarted elves! At last there's a place to call home!


This development is taking place at Akbuk Bay. These mushroom shaped homes are specially designed for families with children but also for those who would like to return to a natural environment. It will be built in beautiful countryside, away from the noise of traffic and the bustle of the city.

This complex will have a swimming pool, a children's pool, sauna, hamam (Turkish bath), sports complex, restaurant, theatre, shopping area, landscaped gardens with tranquil walks and a manmade water feature.

The concept comes from the Smurfs, a very popular children's programme.


What a delightful idea! What child wouldn't want to live in a fantasy mushroom house? You can just picture it, can't you; the kids squealing with joy and racing around with the other neighbourhood children, chasing butterflies and making daisy chains. At night they will curl up in their little beds, smile up at you as you kiss them goodnight, and tell you how much they love living in their mushroom house. Then off they go to sleep, to dream of fairies and pixies and small woodland creatures who wear waistcoats.

Of course in 8-10 years' time the children of the neighbourhood will be in their mid to late teens. They will be into death metal, beer bongs and working on their noisy, oil-leaking cars on the front lawn. They will be acutely embarrassed by you and your frickin' mushroom house, and this will lead to bitterness and resentment. Your home, with its faded red roof and depressingly rusty swing set, will halve in value. You will seek solace in domestic violence and the bottle. Thus within a decade of completion the development will resemble one of the less dramatic levels of Hell.

Thank you, Jen. It's nice to know that the mushroom houses haven't even been built yet and already they're generating love.

What if the 'mushroom' houses would grow with the kid, and as they reached teenage-hood, it would become mushroom houses of the 'magic' variety? It would be an evolved community of shroom heads.....
