TNA is the latest architectural firm to take up the challenge of building a residence without restrictions for developer Christian Bourdais’ Solo Houses project. Lead architects Makoto Takei and Chie Nabeshima have dreamed up an inverted concrete pyramid sunk into the Spanish landscape. Following in the footsteps of designs by Didier Faustino and Johnston Marklee. The resort dwelling is part of Bourdais’ plan to bring cutting edge architecture to a rural setting.
TNA has used a classic form—the pyramid—and cleverly inverted it to create a sense of weightlessness. Large cutouts in the upper dwelling provide panoramic views over the landscape and the sleek interior is divided by mezzanines of different levels. Which keep the open feeling of the pyramid, but clearly define living spaces.
Cutting Edge Architecture Build Inverted Pyramid House
While exterior images of a previous design show the pool housed in a second inverted pyramid sunk below the main residence. The final version sees all design aspects combined into a singular structure. In the final version by TNA. The larger upper level of the pyramid houses three bedrooms and a lounge. Which all have direct access to the rooftop pool in the center.
