The thought of having an octahedron home is pretty sweet, but what about living in an octahedron home that hardly leaves a footprint in nature? Now that would be awesome, right? Well, architecture student Konrad Wójcik wants to make a residence like that possible with his "Primeval Symbiosis" project.
According to Curbed, Wojcik has created renderings of the space, which has been designed to be a combination of "comfortableness and practicality." He got the idea for a structure like this after studying nature and how animals live in trees. "Studying [a tree's] nature allowed me to come up with ideas and solutions to create a completely self-sufficient construction," he told My Modern Met.
Basically, the home would be "stuck" into the ground -- similar to, a garden post, as Curbed explains. Inside, you'll be able to fit two or four people. All the furniture would be Cradle to Cradle certified, and heating and energy would be produced via the sun and ground.
Pretty impressive if you ask us.
