• Architect Junya Ishigami designs circular home on uneven rock formations

  • junya-ishigami-private-residence-chile-designboom-08Whoever said building a home on rocky surfaces is near impossible probably wasn’t thinking the way Junya Ishigami does. The Japanese architect recently showed off this swanky new human nest, designed to be built for an art collector. Located at an undisclosed spot in Chile, the home is a one-storey disc-shaped dwelling positioned atop two rock formations. Given the fact that the structure is right up there amid the clouds, the inhabitants can enjoy spectacular 360 degree views of the environment around.

    Besides its one-of-a-kind disc shape, the home also sports sculpture-like interiors with rounded walls that divide the internal areas. These have been carefully designed to help illuminate the interiors better, reflecting natural and artificial lights. Also, though the home may look unbalanced, standing on two seemingly uneven rock formations, Ishigami’s design is just as safe as a regular apartment block built on a flat terrain!
