The ‘House Inside A Rock’ Is The Perfect Cross Between Nature & Design

May 13, 2019

Category: Living

With even more transcendental technology being developed to aid in the process of building our planet’s modernized structures, it’s only a matter of time before we see environmentally-articulated dwellings. Although the industry isn’t quite there, designers like Amey Kandalgaonkar are laying the foundation for an eco-conscious future — one that looks exceptionally promising, if “House Inside A Rock” is anything to go by.

Kandalgaonkar’s incredibly unique home draws heavily from Saudi Arabia’s Madain Saleh, a historic archaeological location widely known for its “abnormal” rock faces — most of which are carved, shaped, and hollowed out to act as tombs. Inspired by the way these structures associated with their surroundings, the Shanghai-based designer opted to create his own organic dwelling, integrating a clean, concrete facade with the landscape’s looming sandstone formations. The multi-tier pagoda incorporates a handful of luxurious amenities, from numerous decks, viewpoints, and a fully encapsulated terrace, all the way to an immaculately-placed infinity pool that overlooks the area’s desolate surroundings.
