Nestled on a 450-acre nature reserve in the UK, the luxury and eco-friendly Orchid House designed by Featherstone Associates will actually produce more energy that in consumes, making it a pinnacle in contemporary sustainable housing design. The unique facade is inspired by local plant and animal life, utilizing laminated veneer lumber and covered in timber shingles to provide beauty and durability for years to come while blending in with the surrounding environment. Interior spaces fan out from a central living area, with portions floating on the lake. Fetching an astounding £7.2 million (or $14.2 million) from an anonymous buyer, sources indicate that interested parties included Brad Pitt and Kylie Minogue, but if you really want to know who bought this ultra-modern abode, you’ll have to wait until its completion in 2011.
