Architectural designer Javier Corvalan designed this home in Asunción, Paraguay for a film director client. The boxy structure of the home is inspired by the client’s love of photography as it resembles the shape and function of a pinhole camera.

The giant metal roof tilts up and down, letting light and air flow through the house, allowing for a self-ventilation system that is both effective and budget-friendly. One of the concerns addressed in the home’s overall structure was vandalism and dangerous local crime and the roof acts as a shell that encases and protects the interior while the owner is away.

This tilting home by Javier Corvalan is a dramatic way to ensure every living comfort is met while staying on a strict building budget. Stats for Roof-Raising Residences Trending: Older & Average
