House With a Swimmingpool on The Roof and Panoramic View of The Surroundings

Can you imagine looking at the ocean during the day and up at the stars durning the night while chilling in the pool on the roof of your house? Sounds like a dream and those who own the Universe House located in Roca Blanca, Mexico live in this dream. The house was designed by Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco, and built by architect Tatiana Bilbao.

The house is opened onto its surroundings thanks to an observation platform and the swimming pool on its roof. It’s made of cast concrete, prefabricated blocks, whitewashed plasterwork and wood. There are two bedrooms under the roof so the dream lifestyle is really possible. What else do you need when you have such pool to spent days in the place to sleep? { Photos by Iwan Baan }

    I love it!! Where is this?

    Would love this for a vacation house… water, views, verandas and the pool may even keep it cooler on the inside! Unless you get there in a helicopter, it just seems a little cabana near the sea, shouldn’t be that expensive to build either. Not too fond of all the concrete inside and on the floors, mexican pavers would have warmed it up a bit. But all in all I give it a thumbs up for innovation and good design for it’s use. :)

    it is good ideas, it is really innovation in design. But i’m afraid of the condition of its. Sunshine is wonderful for people swimming, but so terrible if have problem which it happen. Otherwise, i think the gutter of swimming near the wall around swimming than. It’s more interesting for people look around.

    Close to Puerto Escondido, a good surf spot though a bit trashed now. Look at that sweet line in the first pix! Still this place is the ultimate surfari pad, nada to distract from “olas y sol” with a little cerveza….

    woah, what a dumbass design anybody consider the falling hazard, that safety problem could have been addressed while still providing for the same effect. more stupid rich people.

  19. nicholas Says:

  20. gininitaly Says:

    Well Waicool…. I’d call it a grown up playhouse; Though you’d have to go easy on the booze and smoke (Curtis) ;)…. just to be there in nature doing grown up things pleasurably.. what a great place to unwind in simplicity.. and no, not really expensive in the realm of ‘stupid rich people’ atuff.
