Lionel Messi

Taking inspiration from a soccer ball’s design, architect Luis de Garrido has designed a fantasy eco-mansion for Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi. Called the One-Zero Eco-House, the masive cylindrical dwelling would be topped with a lushgreen roof and constructed to sustainable specifications. Inspired by the interests and lifestyle requirements of his ideal client, Lionel Messi, De Garrido created the virtual house as an homage to the famed footballer. The One-Zero Eco-House is proposed for the forested land in the Llavaneres Sant Andreu municipality, about twenty miles north of Barcelona. At a birdseye view, the home appears like a soccer ball in design, with the classic hexagonal pattern serving as dividers that permeate the structure.
