BIG designed the island’s yet-to-be-built property in collaboration with clothes brand Vollebak, which is known for its future-facing garments. Named Earth House, it’s described as a ‘village-like cluster’ which spans nine connected buildings, put together using planet-friendly materials such as seaweed, thatch and hempcrete.
Concepts for the carbon-neutral complex show it sunken into the earth and covered with a green roof. Interior plans features include a 3D-printed stargazing room, a seaweed boathouse, and a bathhouse carved out of the island’s bedrock.
BIG also designed Wood House – a separate annexe located on the private island’s shore that would be built using wood sourced from the surrounding land.
According to Vollebak, the island – which is for sale via Concierge Auctions with an estimate of $5-$10m – is the first in a series of ambitious projects exploring how humans could live in ‘a world of climate change, space travel, and resource scarcity.’
