Gallery: Subarquitectura’s 360° House Embraces Geometry With a Spiralin...

 
Towards the center of the home where it descends into the sloping earth, there is no opportunity for windows or an outside view. However, they instead take advantage of that isolation by placing a mediatheque in this portion of the house, which benefits from the lack of exposure to the outside world.

Some of the most inspiring architecture begins with a basic idea that is then transformed into innovative design. In the case of 360° House – a home that was designed to trace a 360 degree loop – the end result was revolutionary. Created by the Spanish firm Subarquitectura, the home is a unique interpretation of the geometry of architecture which tries to reshape our understanding of space in modern homes.

According to the team responsible for the project – Andrés Silanes, Fernando Valderrama and Carlos Bañón – the initial seedling of the idea for 360 House stemmed from a series of practical requests from the resident who commissioned the home, and the twin desire to create a house that was both beautiful and functional. “The aim of the shape is to respond to the many architectural inputs,” the team says. “To solve at the same time the problem of constructing a home on a slope, to take advantage of the beautiful mountain views that surround the perimeter, and to multiply the possibilities of use.”
