Designer villa by the architect Luis de Garrido
Inspired by the shape of the football, architect Luis de Garrido designed a fantastic eco-house designed specifically for Argentine football star Lionel Messi. The Eco House "1: 0" has a massive, cylindrical shape and has a roof garden with lush vegetation and sustainable features.
From the lifestyle and interests of his ideal client - Lionel Messi, the architect created this virtual home in relation to the well-known footballer.
The eco-house should be on a land area 35 km. north of Barcelona. From the bird's eye view, the structure looks just like a football with the typical hexagonal pattern. Half of the roof will be covered with grass and the other half - a triangular grid of mirrored glass that lets the daylight flood freely into the house.
Sustainable eco-house in the form of football
Wooden terraces around the house connect the interior and the exterior. Visitors can enter the house through a gate with a green roof. In the backyard is a huge pool.
This eco-house is a collaborative project by the National Association for Sustainable Architecture, where architects design eco-house designs for a list of famous people.
