Dubbed “Eye of the Storm,” the dome villa on Sullivan Island, South Carolina, is designed to withstand the deadly storms.
The house was built in 1989 by architect X Dilling.
Viewed from above, the house is covered by a monolithic white shell that can save energy.
The house has a view of the beach with large glass windows.
The house is over 300 square meters. Main floor space includes living, dining and entertainment areas, kitchen, 3 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms.
The interior design is inspired by the curves of shells that are commonly seen on the beach.
The house also has an elevator, bar, roof windows and even a safe deposit box.
“Eye of the storm” is made of concrete and steel weighing about 650 tons (equivalent to about 1.3 million pounds).
Modern bedroom space.
Bathrooms are also decorated in a minimalist way.
Large stairs to the third floor continue to be designed and sculpted in the shape of a dome.
The kitchen uses wood tone tone as the main.
The dining area is located just to the right of the main entrance.
The house is ideally located just 20 minutes drive to downtown Charleston.
Great views of the Lowcountry’s most beautiful beach and the view of the sunrise on the Atlantic every morning.
The dome shape allows water to flow around when the waves rise. Its weight and durability allow it to withstand wind and storm surges.
