Antireality is classified as the direct opposition to what we perceive to be true, whether our perception is defined by the tangible world around us, or by influencers that are beyond our control. Oddly enough, a design firm of the same name has made quite an impression within the architecture community — and they, too, seek to question the limits of modern-day dwellings.
Antireality’s most recent project, the “Summer House,” reinterprets what it means to own a rooftop pool. The conceptual home boasts a unique triangular layout that plays host to three circular columns, which act as perpetual reinforcement for an outlandish “rooftop” swimming area. The Summer House utilizes a jagged, rock-strewn outcrop as its foundation, reaching upward with a sloping concrete floor before eventually tapering off near its midsection. To mimic the gradual slope on the home’s lower level, an inverted roof structure denotes the ceiling of the space — although, atop the home, a body of water only accessible via ladder serves to both entertain and enamor, gifting denizens with a superb swimming area that overlooks the surrounding landscape.
