360° of Pleasure and Function
Having a 360° view from inside a building is a luxury. Restaurants on top floors of skyscrapers offering this kind of view are magnets to patrons. Imagine if it is your house that rotates 360°.
Architect Roberto Rossi designed a rotating house near the Adriatic Coast, Italy, built by contractor Protek. The rotation not only gives an aesthetic pleasure, but it’s also functional. Solar panels are placed on the roof, and with the rotation they can follow the sun’s path to absorb the energy optimally. The house sits on top of a one-metre pillar that rotates mechanically, and it can be set to rotate in either directions.
