I would never leave this house (16 HQ photos)

My dream house was designed by Gabriel Orozco and built by architect Tatiana Bilbao in Roca Blanca, Mexico. The house was inspired by Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory, built in Delhi in 1724.

Photography is by Iwan Baan.

    looks nice, but would like to see more of the inside

    • TheAndy

      Go to ArchDaily.com

      It's an Architecture blog – and this house was recently featured. You can find a lot of goodies about this place.

      agreed, from what i did see of the inside it seemed cold not very warm and inviting

      Damn, that's a good line to break the ice. Will try that in the bar later.

      – the one you love to hate

    Awesome idea, but that pool and roof would be scorching hot on a nice day.

    • Lawndart

      Any pool out in the sun would be… but I see a lot of deck space for a potential cabana or tiki bar that would solve that problem!

    • Joe

      Pool's very deep for its width. Probably keeps a lot cooler than a typical pool. Agree that the deck would be very hot without shade, though.

  • haha

    Besides all the cacti it looks awesome

  • CaptainStag

    As awesome as it looks from the outside, I can't help but wonder how much space you're left with indoors. By the looks of it, not much :-/

    • silkystealthsurgeon

      plus from what i can see, the interior styling they went for is called 'concrete'

  • huh?


  • the gent

    So there are only four small rooms? I say who gives a shit about the inside when you have a deck/pool/view like that!

  • Verbal_Kint

    Dream house? No. Interesting? Yes. Not sure how comfortable I would be having a pool in the middle of my house based on the building practices and techniques in Mexico. Stucco and plaster can hide alot of stuff you don't want to see.

    • Dick Salad

      They went all out with that thatched roof…

      • Dick Salad

        and don't say its aesthetic it looks like shit they just threw down

      • Verbal_Kint

        It took 20 minutes of painstaking labor to assemble…

    • rich

      If the pool's wall cracked it would flood the house.

    When I run a mexican drug cartel that house may be my first purchase

  • EddieMoska

    They built a rally nice pool next to the beach. I myself have always wanted to live in a pool.

  • CFC

    The yard/garden could use some improvements. Not a great run to the beach through the catus and rocks…But amazing home idea.

  • LineHog

    better hope the pool doesn't spring a leak!

  • Dick Salad

    #11 the furnishings alone must be worth a fortune

    • Verbal_Kint

      I'm laughing my ass off at your comments.

      • Mike Latoris

        Sweet irony

    • OhSomeEvil

      The whole idea is passed on simplicity & it's so modern.
      Who needs items, when those items end up owning you?

  • Boooger

    Thats not a house, its a pool with a small bedroom attached.

    • lonin

      So….Pretty much my dream house.

  • https://www.facebook.com/Cbarksfullout Chris Barks

    Def no such thing as a bad day if you're living here. It looks so peaceful.

  • AssClown

    #1 Definitely shopped. I've seen some good shops in my days…I can also tell by the pixels just above the clouds…

  • Mike Pots

    I hope there is never a leak.

  • Sponge Bob

    I love it!

    If this was on the beach at Normandy it would be called a bunker.

  • Abner Doon

    I can't understand those that want a pool right next to the ocean… Plenty of good swimming water right in front of you!

    • MonkeyMadness

      At least there is nothing trying to eat you in your pool. That thing must be a bitch to keep clean though.

  • Herp Derp

    This person probably bathes in 20's

    Maybe he can hire someone to kill Paula

    #10 Should have used the money and bought your bitch some TITTIES!

  • Coldzilla

    Not sure why youd want a pool right next to the ocean but this is pretty awesome


    • Leo Vzainszceskov

      If you have a pool, you don't have to worry about all the little animals and plants that come in the ocean. But I guess if you want you can also swim in the ocean. Cheers! 🙂

        think i saw a turd floating in the pool. collegepoison.com
