"Polyhedron Habitable" by Manuel Villa

small house

Today we will show you exceptional house created as a relaxation space, which allows to escape from the stresses and worries of daily life. Colombian architect Manuel Villa designed this small house and called it “Polyhedron Habitable”. It was created as a space for the parents and young children to spend some quiet bonding time. “The outcome is a Regular Polyhedron –a “Truncated Cubic-octahedron”– transformed into a inhabitable space; a self-standing volume with one of his faces opened to the surroundings, and little windows on the sides and at the top that supply day light and optimal air circulation conditions.” Take a look!

    Loving the design on this. To me it conveys ‘futuristic’ but also has a strong Japanese look to it, probably as a result of the woods used.

    This is amazing! Looks like its a step towards going green, too!
