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.

    Interesting concept, but I don't think I could live there. What happens when the pool starts to leak?

  • tigress

    It’s not bad, but I think the pool should be see thru, it would make the surrounding walls more interesting

  • soda pop

    Just looks like a glorified pool then a house.

    #11 – cool pool, great spot, but it's kind of a shack, no? Also, #9 – you would undoubtedly fall to your death after a couple of Coronas.

    Hmm, pool full of water, inches away from where your head sleeps at night… nope, no problems there.

    #1 has a decent surfable break…………….

    You would never leave that house?!?! I've seen way better…

    This typical construction, not design of many vacation homes in mexico. Some have no power or plumbing and nearly all have no central air. Though I guess I could get by without airconditioning and having to tote in bottled water for a few weeks.

    I would have made the pool out of plexyglass. Now that would have been truly cool.

    Perfect vacation house! Not much to clean up and it's badass/somewhat magical.

    That deck is all right and good until you get wasted and fall off.

    I am in 100%

    Too bad it's in Mexico.

  • Lokobo

    My house doesn't even look half as nice, and I never leave mine…….

  • Fukin A

    you basically showed a pool

  • grog

    nice to hang out at, then leave to go back to your house.

  • phideauxe

    ………….. and then the Mexican Gov't nationalized the property and took it away…..

  • MoNature

    Just a shame they fucked up that beautiful unspoiled landscape to built it.

  • Auz_E

    I'd leave that house to go swim at the beach too.

  • Sean

    I want that house

  • Jess

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