“Living the high life” takes on a whole new meaning when you’re actually hundreds of feet off the ground—especially when you’re literally one with nature. Even considering the idea of living in a home that hugs a rock formation or blends perfectly in with the trees around it is somewhat unbelievable.

For Architectural Designer Amey Kandalgaonkar, based in Shanghai, even the most inconceivable structures are possible with a little imagination. Looking out the @ameyzing_architect’s fictional designs, it’s easy to dream up what they would be like in real life. The “house inside a rock” pictured below, for one, is a unique way of envisioning a life where natural formations aren’t seen as obstructive.

“The context of this project is inspired from #madainsaleh rock cut architecture in Saudi Arabia,” Amey shared in the Instagram post. Unfortunately, since this structure isn’t currently a reality, we can’t go for a home tour. But since the talented architect designer did “ask” for billionaires to help build it, I’m hoping there ends up being a few risk takers.

Amey told DesignBloom, “It was imperative to use simple planes and cubes in order to achieve a visual balance. I started out creating the rock in 3D software, which in itself was a sculpting process. Later, when inserting the house into this rock, I tried to keep its visual impact from eye level as minimum as possible and only when observed from a bird eye, the real extent of the intervention is revealed.”

And the aerial view really doesn’t disappoint. From above, this incredible structure features an incredible infinity pool, sun loungers, a dining area, and plenty of space to entertain.

Reimagining #pagoda architecture. While the entire world was swept by Moderinst movment, China was largely untouched by Modernism. So when I visited various ancient Chinese monuments, I couldn’t help wonder how a modernist mind would interpret traditional #chinesearchitecture. This time I decided to spend some time on that idea….. #modernistmonument#modernistarchitecture #brutgroup #brutalist #brutalism #brutalistarchitecture #concrete #concretedesign #concreteart #concretearchitecture #octanerender #cgi #digitalarchitecture #designboom #artsytecture #architecturefactor #amazingarchitecture #architectanddesign #arqsketch #architecture_hunter #Arc_Only #thebna #archilovers
