With these edgy, light-filled renderings, Mexican architectural visualization artist Juan Carlos Ramos has dreamed up a way to bring the iconic pyramid shape outside the realm of kitschy hotels and into the realm of kitschy single-family homes. As a house, the pyramid, a long-time favorite of ancient peoples (and, you know, Bjarke Ingels) has previously been limited to 1980s relics and the architectural dregs of 1960s counterculture, but Ramos has succeeded in designing a pyramidal home that has all of the makings of a contemporary real estate hit: a privacy-eschewing glass wall, sunken living areas, an open plan, and photo-realistic renderings beautiful enough to be oil paintings.
