Surreal Estate: Australia’s Bubble House!!

/ by

Think you live in a “bubble?” Try living in this BUBBLE HOUSE!! Pack your bags because this piece of surreal estate is in Queensland, Australia!! It was designed by Architect Mr. Graham Birchall and is “ode to strength, beauty and the simplicity of the humble circle.” No mention of price but, as they say, “If you have to ask…”

What started as a thesis idea, 36 years ago, by Mr Birchall, grew into the current family home. Eleven intersecting circular domes which range from 4m to 8m in diameter are the key formations. The remote iris circular shutters provide privacy, function and form. Internal water cooling fountain is a one of design as the air-conditioning system. The timber heater embraces level one and level two with the design individually created to fit this space. A traditional boat builder and carpenter crafted the kitchen complete with all the curves.

    This is amazing! Probably, to live in such a house, need to have incredibly lungs (or light?) thoughts. It is also necessary to drink champagne and oxygen cocktails and take mineral-pearl baths. And to travel exclusively in a hot air balloon! And need have a supply of regular balloons … and lots of bubble wrap (just in case). Thank you for sharing, Pee-wee!
