Desert Rose House 3D model
Desert Rose House is an extreme approach to the subject of living in a
Our project of a house is a vision of
creating self-sufficient eco-system, that will provide water and fresh
air for the house dwellers. Also, it is
massively inspirational form, that evokes many emotions and feelings.
At the beginning, we thought about a
house as "the heart of a desert", but as the shape of the building
and a main
color reminds us of a rose - the choice
of name was simple.
Construction of the house is very
futuristic, combines different methods and materials.
Form consist of five spaces:
"garden" - which is the space underneath the structure, inside a hole
in a desert ; "heart" - main building - with most of standard
interior functions such as living room (illuminated by skylight in the roof),
kitchen, bedroom, etc. ; "terrace" - the floor of the terrace is made
from fotopholtaic panels - energy source for the structure, which are partially
transparent to provide a skylight for dwellers inside the building ;
"inner terrace" or so called "time cube" - that is the entertaining
place for dwellers. In the "garden" they can relax, they can hide
inside the "heart" from the sun and wind, they can get some fresh air
and energy on the "terrace", but to entertain they need an unique,
but simple space, where all the walls and shapes are "out of the
box", images from the past and future combine with each other and make the
dwellers think about their lives, families and the world out there. Last but
not least - the "tower" - most dynamic and complexed form, that
simply provides an "observatory" functions to the house located in
the middle of desert. It is also a place for physical activities and walks.
As we read about “acquiring water in a
desert” techniques, a planted ring of plants inside plastic bags should provide
water and food for dwellers.
Our project is an architecture, which we believe is almost impossible to build at the moment, but
surely will be accessible in the future.
The past is today, the future is
