The common definition of “wavy,” at least according to Urban Dictionary, is something that “got swag, got style, is fresh and is mobbin.” Despite being a private residence and not a physical being of freshness, the “Wave House” certainly fits the bill. It is the latest project from architect Mario Romano, and it is a work of trippy, futuristic perfection.
The "Wave House" derives its title from the ornate construction of the building’s roof. It is built from several hundred pieces of white aluminum, all attached to a metal substructure that gives the illusion of the tiles literally waving together in liquid form. From the apex of the roof, these panels flow down a full 60 feet to the bottom of the house’s front wall. “I wanted to unite the sky and earth in a single movement, an architectural element that no one has ever achieved” Romano said of the project.
Elsewhere in the building one will find a “rippling rain screen” wall surrounding the pool in the backyard. This was constructed using computer software that is typically used in the manifestation of airplanes and cars. Though it may only seem an aesthetic feature, this technique allows more air to circulate through the abode and provide a constantly cooler temperature. The house’s interior too was immaculately designed by Romano, assuring that even your bedroom is built with geometric perfection.
