Carolina González Vives designed these cloud-like pods that sit on a Madrid rooftop to give guests the best view of the city.

The project titled 'Cloud Observatory' is a rooftop cooling system that combats hot summer days and is less costly than air conditioning. The entire rooftop observatory is littered with fluffy clouds and mirrors to enhance every moment of the sky-viewing experience. The floating cloud pods provide shade and act as a space divider for individual experiences. With grassy flooring and playful outdoor patio sets, this recreated backyard-themed rooftop will let you indulge in summer in a familiar yet completely new way.

Whether you visit the cloud-like pods for an afternoon of sky gazing or prefer to see the lit-up skyline at nightfall, these pods are the perfect stay-cation adventure.
