The Ultimate Island Dream House
Impressive CGI Design: This is a dream home, it actually doesn't exist (yet), but Xalima was the dream of Daniel Ferrero so perhaps, on some distant island, it might exist one day. Xalima Island House is a poetic mix of glass, stone, metal and wood with an open concept perched on the side of a mountain. While not being practical it certainly is a unique house design which easily reaches dream factor 10.
Mountainside Home: It was designed around a lagoon swimming pool concept that extends below the main living area thanks to much of the house being on stilts. Glass walls provide an unhindered ocean view and a sloped roof with concealed lighting create ambiance on the mountain side of Xalima house.
Cascade Flooring Plan: Multiple cascading floors allow for much more square footage than is possible with a traditional dream home with the same dimensions but I wonder how much of the house is built into the mountain a-la Bill Gates estate style. Still, with or without the secret chambers I don't think I'd change a thing. The island itself provides all the privacy that is needed and I could frolic all day long without getting tired of the view. OK, maybe I'd get a few wrinkles, that's a lot of swimming pool!
Here are several more pictures of the Xalima House design:
Xalima gives my current dream home a run for it's money, or it would if someone built it!
