It is hard to imagine that just five years ago, there was an ordinary country house originally from the Soviet Union - an upgraded cabins. However, the way it was. In times of stagnation settle in this area a couple of doctors with children. Then the children grew up, the world has changed, and the house came into disrepair.
Two years it took the hostess area Olga Kochunevoy to decide on a new construction. It could have increased the average house here, if not in the eyes zemlevladelitse came across an article about a spherical house. And now - the first home-dome in the suburbs.
Olga, the doctor-rehabilitator, originally wanted to build an unusual summer house, where forgets the city and managed to recuperate over the weekend. The spherical shape of the home meets all the needs of the hostess: a large living room, high ceilings, a bedroom for the family of Olga and her son. He lives near the family's daughter, so that the people in the house, always a lot of ball.

Sturdy prefabricated house stands on a wooden platform. Outwardly, it resembles a dome in steel cells - the membrane is made of recycled PVC with a lifetime of 25 years. Part of the cells are made transparent, and some - blind, coated with anti-ultraviolet radiation. Inside - the open space with different functional areas. One of the most attractive places in the house - a cedar tub with panoramic window. There is something to see. On the cliff can be seen not only the waters of the Atlantic, but also the medieval castle, near where the shooting took place the movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Initially, the manufacturers proposed to use these homes as emergency housing and tourism or for business purposes - for example, at trade shows. But it turned out, many people are willing to live in these "balls" all year round. The diameter of the hemisphere - six meters, height - 3, 7 m, area - 30 square meters.

House called Radius House was built over 50 years ago, but today looks very modern. Its unusual shape he owes to the architect Daniel Lieberman, one of the first evangelists of the "green" construction and reusable materials.
Daniel before the others realized that building with panoramic windows on the perimeter and a glass roof receives more solar energy than usual. This means that you can save on heating and electricity. Finally, the architect was drawn to organic shapes and angles in nature are rare. As a result, in the green hills of California surrounded by redwoods came round the house with a framework of wood of local breeds and different parts recycling - elements of bridges and even military aircraft. Recently, the house has gone through a major renovation, but its present owners, Andrew Kim and Todd Lieberman spared concept.
