Sure, the Great Pyramid of Giza was a tomb, but wouldn’t it be great to live inside a majestic monument of your very own?
Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos designed a modern Pyramid House, and it looks stunning. The design features a garage, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, library, and recording studio. An entire side of the pyramid is a giant, triangular window.
“My favorite feature is the main studio in the first floor,” Ramos told media. “I love the idea of the house-studio and for me it was so important to make a flexible space for living and work with this huge facade of glass facing to the nature.” “I found just a few examples of pyramidal houses in the history of the architecture, because a box shape is more functional than a pyramid,” Ramos continued.
But, he notes, “we have thousands of examples about this shape in the sacred architecture of the ancient cultures. That’s why I tried to bring back this shape and re-adapt it to the modern way to live.”
The house is currently just a concept, but Ramos has kept the design in his mind and would like to make it a reality. “I’m taking this project calmly, as a labor of love for art and architecture,” he explained.
Ramos is currently working on a real time animation of the house and is seeking an investor.
