Some homes were meant to be hidden gems. Roost Home is one of them. Envisioned to stand high and proud in the depths of the Scottish Highlands, this futuristic home features some of the most modern concepts in architecture you’ve ever seen!
The French artist Benoit Challand envisioned a futuristic home which combines the styles of Le Corbusier’s houses as well as Santiago Calvatrava’s sculptures. The result being a hidden architectural masterpiece.
The house is called Roost House, a fitting name since it’s raised many stories in the air. This is a photo-realistic depiction of the home in Scotland. Challand designed the home through his inspiration in the styles of Villa Savoye and Cabanon, in addition to the sculptures created by architect Santiago Calatrava.
Speaking about the technology used in the home Challand said, “Using a bunch of new technologies, in terms of building engineering and environmental resources, this house is intended to be fully autonomous”. The walls on the exterior and interior of the home will be built with clad and timber, including floor panels that create seamless balconies around the perimeter of the home. A roof equipped with solar panels will provide solar power to the home.
You might be wondering, “How do you get inside!?” Well, a ladder that’s not shown in the images would provide easy access. In addition, a wind turbine can be found hanging from the bottom of the lowest floor which spins as a breeze passes through. The rooms are illustrated with an assortment of iconic interior designs, featuring the LC4 chaise lounge by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
