In the previous post we’ve talked about house in the form of shell – Nautilus House. But category “Creative houses” would be incomplete without mention of the villa of Pierre Cardin. This masterpiece of modern architecture is located 10 km away from Cannes and was built in 1989. Initially, the project was commissioned by rich industrialist, but he died before the end of construction. Then Cardin have found this building and not only invested 50 million francs, but joined to the architect Lovag in close creative collaboration. Villa is called “Palais Bulles” and occupies the territory of 1200 square meters. In addition to the villa in the surrounding area are situated amphitheater with 500 seats, a garden with various water pools (of course, round), Oak grove.
The house has 28 round bedrooms similar to soap bubbles (beds are also round). Living room with couches of coral color also has spherical shape. There is no pictures at the walls, but floors from wall to wall covered with thick, fluffy carpets. Specially designed illuminators change the light depending on time of the day. As for materials, then, at the insistence of Cardin, instead of traditional wood and metal, it was decided to experiment with plastic, foam, polyester.
"If there is paradise on earth, I would like to see it looked like my house, – says couturier. – I have other homes, but they – from money, but this like a glove, perfectly tailored for my hand, my character and my life."
