Naomi Campbell’s Massive Island Eco-House in Turkey

If the world comes to an end, model Naomi Campbell and her nearest and dearest will have no trouble surviving in this 25 roomed eco-home. Designed by and a birthday gift from one of our favorite new architects Luis de Garrido, the glass domed house is completely energy and water self-sufficient and features an amazing indoor landscaped terraceEverything about this house is a dream: its comfortable microclimate, its constant flow of air, light and heat when necessary, its superior landscaping, and of course the fact that it was built on the Isla Playa de Cleopatra in Turkey (notice the Egyptian theme.)


Every architect on the planet would probably love to have an assignment like this one, and Luis de Garrido from Spain, ostensibly free of budget or creative restrictions, ran with it. The multi-level central dome is framed with steel and clad in glazed glass panels that permit sunlight all year round. Although the greenhouse effect promotes natural heating, certain measures such as landscaping and tilted louvers ensure that the heat is not unbearable during the summer time. Steps have also been taken to provide plenty of ventilation.

Combined with the photovoltaic panels that make up the propertys Eye of Horus shape, a state-of-the-art geothermal system provides all of the energy this 25 bedroom home (complete with five lounges) could possibly need. Rainwater is harvested, and an on-site biological system treats wastewater. Inside the house is a landscaped terrace, from which it is possible to take in the incredible views. Perhaps the only question remaining is this: how do we become best friends with Naomi so we can camp out on Cleopatra Island when the apocalypse comes?Bonus pics of Vladimir and Naomi on vacation in Hawaii and Capri, Italy a few weeks ago:
