The pyramids of Egypt remain one of the great wonders of the world. These are of course the place that is the final resting place of the Pharoahs that once ruled over Egypt years ago. But have any of us had any desire to live in one ourselves?
Pyramid House Displays Unique form of Architecture
Well, it turns out that Architect Juan Carlos Ramos use the ancient pyramids as an inspiration for his design for an architecture competition. However, despite having a look that closely resembles that of an actual pyramid to overall design is unique in many ways. The design relies on a simplistic and modern somewhat flair to give it even more unique features. One notable feature is the fact that one of the sides is all window giving off the amazing views and supplying the entire structure with natural light. As for privacy, don't worry this house is designed to be a private getaway where there aren't any neighbors and plenty of natural beauty of mother nature surrounding it. In other words, not exactly something designed for those on a fixed budget but then for some of us looking at such an architectural marvel is great but living in one may not be something we would want to do.
The pyramid house has two bedrooms, a library, a kitchen, bathrooms and even a balcony at the very top. For Ramos creating the designing, the structure consisted of using 3-D Max software, Photoshop, I too, Forest along with other software programs to achieve the overall effect needed to show his vision.
Yes, this may not be the first time the pyramids of Egypt have been used as a design for an architectural achievement. The Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas also was inspired by the pyramids as well. But we might venture to say it's the first time a residential home has been proposed to take on this design. It is truly a unique concept in architecture and something many of us have to see for ourselves to truly believe it could be done. In order to create photo-realistic representations that would bring this unique architecture to life, the architect used 3D rendering software including 3Ds Max, Photoshop, Itoo, Forest and several other programs, all of which helped him to design a private house with simple geometric shapes that can be easily installed in residential architecture.
