The multi-level central dome is framed with steel and clad in glazed glass panels that permit sunlight all year round. Although the greenhouse effect promotes natural heating, certain measures – such as landscaping and tilted louvers – ensure that the heat is bearable during the summer time. It will also have plenty of ventilation.

Combined with the photovoltaic panels that make up the property’s Eye of Horus shape, a state-of-the-art geothermal system provides all of the energy this 25 bedroom home (complete with five lounges) could possibly need. Rainwater is harvested, and an on-site biological system treats wastewater. Inside, the house is a landscaped terrace, from which it is possible to take in the incredible views.
