Spanish architecture firm, Z4Z4 , has created one very unique home consisting of massive white cylindrical structures fused together to create two houses in one. Inspired by the homeowner’s love of travel and nature, the interior space connects the home to the earth through a large interior greenhouse , while the rest of the home “floats” whimsically above ground. https://vimeo.com/164173559 The home’s design was meant to represent the homeowners’ paradoxical love of both travel and domesticity, “A family was looking for a new home able to represent their trips around the globe, their desire to live in a garden and to embody the cinematic diversity of domestic life. The result is the design of two different houses on the same plot,” explained the architects.

The main cylindrical volumes are surrounded with a sliding screen made of corrugated iron curtains that allow for optimal natural light into the minimalist interior . On the interior, the space is soothing, with little in terms of divisions apart from the double height greenhouse , which is divided by the “Good Life” garden on the south and the “Grotesque Garden” to the north. Along with nine spacious rooms, the home also includes a lounge area, pool, sauna and fitness center. + Z4Z4 Via World Architecture Photography by Imagen Subliminal
