I’ve always imagined one of my first grandiose purchases if I became super rich to be an observatory. Not because I am interested in advanced astronomy, but because it would greatly enhance my nights of drinking beer and listening to Pink Floyd records. Now the Universe House may not have the practical applications of an observatory, but the entire design of the home was based on a model of one built in Delhi.
The Universe House, conceived by Gabriel Orozco, has a swimming pool on the roof which is perfect for star searching during a late night swim.
Just the fact that you can go for a dip on top of your home, nominates the Universe House to be the best place to live this die of the Milky Way.
