Pierre Cardin's Bubble Mansion

One very specific villa, which cost £300 million ($335.8 million), until recently was on the market. Pierre Cardin’s Palais Bulles, which means Bubble Palace has found its new owner. The 1,200-square-meter complex sits atop of Massif de L’Esterel, a volcanic mountain range known for its red hues. It consists of ten gigantic bubbles in the colors of terracotta.

Offering a perfect view of the Mediterranean bay, this uniquely designed property, which the French Ministry of Culture declared historical monument, features twenty-eight spherical rooms, including ten suites with a round bed, three swimming pools, lush gardens and an amphitheater with 500 seats.
The mansion on the French Riviera was designed and built by Hungarian architect Antti Lovag in the period from 1975 to 1989, who was inspired by ‘ancestral homes’ such as pre-historic caves.

Although the concept is Lovag’s, love for bubbles which Pierre Cardin harbored could be seen long before that – he designed the famous ‘bubble dress’ in 1954.
This fashion designer who is 92 year old, said that spherical shapes always inspired him, and that his heaven in the form of bubbles was something like a living art gallery, which constantly supplies and feeds the strong creativity. A large number of fashion shows are held right here, and it was available for rent for private holidays.
