Architect Designs a Soccer Ball-Shaped House for Famous Footballer Lionel Messi
The One-Zero Eco-House is proposed for the forested land in the Llavaneres Sant Andreu municipality, about twenty miles north of Barcelona. At a birdseye view, the home appears like a soccer ball in design, with the classic hexagonal pattern serving as dividers that permeate the structure. Half of the roof would be covered with green grass, while the other half would comprise a triangular grid of mirrored glass that allows natural light to enter the entire interior.
Wooden terraces surrounding the home’s perimeter on both levels connect residents with the lush landscape outdoors. Visitors would enter through a green-roofed gate house that leads to a path to the main house and the home’s back side would meet an oversized swimming pool.
De Garrido’s One-Zero Eco-House forms part of a project in collaboration with the National Association for Sustainable Architecture, where the architect has custom designs eco-homes for a laundry list of celebrities and people of note based on collected data of their personal preferences and specifications.
