360° of Plea­sure and Func­tion

Indonesia Design - Defining Luxury - - NEWS -

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.
