This villa is designed by Enric Ruiz-Geli’s firm Cloud9. It is an example of usual contemporary structure made of concrete but with a quite intriguing shape and very usual features that changes its look entirely. The most cool feature is that the building itself is the extension of the site. It is conceived as a growing C-shaped spiral with grass and plants on the roof. Besides hydroponic rooftop garden there is an underground garage so the structure is very economical and environmental. There is a lot of glazing in the house and its rear features an almost 50 foot-wide expanse of glass. Being environmental by itself the house also features the landscape views from many rooms. { Cloud9 }

    If that rooftop garden is hydroponic, then why is that guy watering it with a hose?

    Probably to get better photo =)

    It’s might be hydroponic and it could very well be economical in its use of space but it is certainly not environmentally friendly in terms of heat and cooling; that much glass negates any insulating effect the roof may have. You can talk about high R-Value windows until the cows come home but a hole in your house is still hard to insulate.

    On the other hand, it is a cool looking house.

    Nice house though the shower room is a bit on the hideous side. Maybe just the photo…

    I rather like this house, but why go through all the effort of making such a cool house and leave the bathroom looking like… that?

    Regardless of what the “green”-ness of this house is… it’s nice.

    Eh, I value my privacy too much for entire walls to be windows.
