Casa Faustino is a unique home designed by Portuguese architect Didier Faustino that is meant to reference the energetic image of an explosion, specifically the Big Bang. Located in Spain, the unique residence offers multiple viewpoints. Large windows face out in all directions, allowing anyone indoors to get a scenic view of the natural surroundings.
By separating the space into a variety of different rectilinear volumes, the designers were able to vastly change the interior so that occupants and visitors all experience the area in new ways. By creating uneven spatial references, a perceived weightlessness is brought upon those inside. On the bottom level sits a swimming pool that extends out past the walls of the structure, further highlighting the home’s dynamic shape. Each of the other radiating rectangles end in a large window, framing the surrounding landscape and creating different visuals from every angle.
Created as part of the Solo Houses project, an initiative for twelve architects to each build a different home with no constrictions other than budget, Casa Faustino is set to become the second house constructed in the series.
