70s retro villa

This fantastic house was built in Sweden in 1969..

Made entirely of plastic, this fully circular villa was designed by Swedish architect Staffan Berglund for the Danish airline magnate Simon Spies.


 Designed by Swedish architect Staffan Berglund, the winning proposal's circular plan concedes extreme flexibility. The house has two levels: the kitchen is in the inferior level, and at the center of the cupola directly above it, a futuristic device opens to the superior level, allowing the dinner table to rise up to the dining room on the upper level, where the chairs are fixed to the ground. Thanks to this mechanical device, the modest dining space in Villa Spies worked as a versatile space, turning the house into a space seemingly twice as large.
