Nestled in a bluff on a deserted beach in Bahia, Brazil, this extraordinary house is made of a series of striking structures comprised of innovative materials. Casa do Artista is a masterpiece of a home designed by New-York basedÃ‚Â and Italian-born architect, artist, designerÃ‚Â Gaetano Pesce. His work includes architecture, furniture, jewelry and objects, all of which are made unconventionally withÃ‚Â the use of technologically advanced materials, bothÃ‚Â of which are evident in this extraordinary home thatÃ‚Â he has created.Ã‚Â This has become more than a private vacation home, this house was PesceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ‚Â experiment in residential architecture withoutÃ‚Â limits; unique in materials, shape, form and technique. ItÃ‚Â is visually stimulating and over-the-top, but at the same time, in some ways, economically sensible.Ã‚Â The homeÃ‚Â has been divided between private and public spaces,Ã‚Â the main houseÃ‚Â contains the communal living spaces with seven detached buildings, each with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. The main idea was that the house should evoke a feeling of being on a boat. So each individual building has been comprised of a different material. The main building’s facade is covered with a resin and tiles that resemble a fish scale, crafted from a material that weathers very well. One of the pavilionsÃ‚Â was constructed from rubber which appears smooth and elastic;Ã‚Â locally manufactured, it has beenÃ‚Â infused with juniper to mask the rubber scent. Juniper also helps to clear colds, so house guests that spend a night in this home usually feel better the next day. Via
Influenced by the African culture that surrounds Bahia, the home has taken on all different colors, figures and distinctive shapes.
This home has one of the most unique designs I have ever seen, I could never live here, but I would love to take a tour! The artistic expression used throughout the home makes it a one of a kind design. Could you make this your vacation home?
