Solaleya, The Green Rotating Home

Solaleya The Green Rotating Home 1

Besides having this impossibly to resist round shape, the Solaleya domes are amazing inventions signed by Patrick Marsilli. The first Solaleya saw the light of the sun in France, 1988 and 130 more were built up until present times.

The special mushroom shape and the huge windows allow a sun day long natural lighting. There’s also something special about this Solaleya houses – you can opt for a rotating dome because the Solaleya have sun rooftops and you can rotate the house following the sun. The energy used for a 360 deg rotation equals a vacuum cleaner round in the entire house.

Even if the Solaleya is 90% made of wood, it has been proven hurricane and earthquake resistant. I don’t know if I could get used to this round shape, but this dome looks wonderful! The wood, the solar rooftop make from Solaleya one of my favorite houses. (via)

  1. I have been in a domespace house and its a perplexing but amazing experiance.The one I visited revolved so we had a different view every 20 minutes during lunch and throughout the day.Contrary to what’s believed,its not nauseating or claustrophobic.The wood sent out peaceful vibes and an aura of being safe in a cocoon.
