In a world of many unusual and even strange buildings, but if you rank them, the Palace of Bubbles (Palais Bulles), created by architect Antti Lavagem (Antti Lovag) in 1989, will be among its leaders. Now the mansion belongs to Pierre Cardin, who Dotes on him.
The mansion is the Palace of Bubbles is situated in the South of France, 10 kilometres from Cannes, in the small resort town of Tual-sur-Mer. It was built by order of the French artist Pierre Bernard, but belonged to him for long. Now Villa on the Mediterranean sea known as "the House of Pierre Cardin" although the great couturier appears here very rarely.
Most of the year the house is rented, and to afford to spend the weekend can only very wealthy guests. Cardin bought the house with exotic architecture due to the love for unusual things, but there is a Palace of Bubbles and practical application.
In the days of the festival de Cannes in the house organize events and receptions, and in addition it hosts a fashion shoot. Extraordinary form of construction is ideal as a setting for photo shoots and filming spectacular videos.
The building is constructed of reinforced concrete and there are practically no corners. All lines of the interior and exterior are smooth and rounded, as if they had educated hardworking Mediterranean waves. The furnishings is chosen in the same style — they are all rounded like a compass or whipped from suds. The floors in the rooms are covered in soft rugs, and in the common areas — lacquered wood.
Great attention is paid to the in house lighting. It uses custom lights with special lamps that can change brightness and color. The automation monitors the lighting level in the house and changes the intensity of light without human intervention.
The total area of the "House of Cardin" is 1,200 square meters, which located the living room, and each of the 10 spacious apartments. To the main building adjacent to the amphitheater and an observation deck, which offers a magnificent view of the sea, the coast and picturesque cliffs. Near the house a swimming pool and carefully designed garden.
Creating this architectural masterpiece, Antti Lovag tried to make it not only bright, but also comfortable. To combine irregular shape and comfort was incredibly difficult, but the author coped with this task perfectly. According to him, in the Palace of Bubbles, convenience and comfort are achieved through the forms given by nature, so the person feels inside is cozy and quiet.
Lover believes that the direct line is aggression against nature. The room in the form of cubes and parallelepipeds disturb the inner harmony of man as unnatural for him. Straight lines are rare in nature and architect strongly avoid them.
By the way, Lover not like being called an architect or designer. He calls himself gaitolovo, that is a specialist in the human body and natural forms.
Creations Antti Lovage small but well-known to lovers of modern eco-design. At the same time wanting to order his house not so much. This is due to the fact that is based on inspiration and intuition, not always aware of what the result will be.
Agree that this is not a constructive conversation for the person, going to order a luxury mansion. Creations Lovage is first and foremost a work of art, and then the building, therefore, they are valued so highly creative individuals.
