The Mushroom House is a contemporary residence in the town of Perinton, New York, sited in a moderately-wooded ravine adjacent to Powder Mills Park. The house was constructed for attorney-artist couple Robert and Marguerite Antell between 1970 and 1972.
The Mushroom House itself comprises four 80 ton pods which rest on reinforced concrete stems of 14 to 20 feet in height. These fan out from three feet in diameter where they connect to the pods to five feet at the base. One pod serves as the living and dining area, one as the kitchen, and two as sleeping areas.The Presurfer
