Eco-Architecture in the Italian Alps by Lovegrove Studio - Living in a Futuristic Sustainable Bubble

London-based Lovegrove Studio has redefined the term, “living in a bubble” with a futuristic take on the mountain chalet. Geared to stand at an altitude of 2,100 meters in Piz la Ila, Alta Badia, Italy, the ultra-modern Alpine Capsule will not only rival the spectacular views of its surroundings, it will actually reflect them in its unique mirror-finish facade. Resembling the reflective fluidity of mercury, Alpine Capsule is intended to “de-materialize” its appearance from the outside, while from the inside the one-way mirror coating allows overnight guests to enjoy unobstructed 360-degree views of the Italian Alps. The interior is a blend of modern, minimalist and soft three-dimensional style designed for relaxation. Apart from its contemporary concept and look, Alpine Bubble is also a sustainable design, entirely off-the-grid and powered by alternative energy sources such as photovoltaic technology integrated with vertical wind turbines. Construction will begin in 2010. Lovegrove Studio
