Italian-born, New York-based designer / artist / architect Gaetano Pesce is known the world over for his unconventional, avant-garde, and imaginative architectural designs. He’s a rule breaker with a passion for color, shape, and state-of-the-art technology, which is evident in his recent architectural phenomenon on the beaches of Bahia, Brazil.

Pesce’s private vacation home (dubbed Casa do Artista), is visually stimulating and over-the-top, but at the same time, in some ways, economically sensible. The exterior is covered in multi-colored glass and tiles to resemble fish scales, while the interior is constructed from some of the area’s local resources. For example, one of the pavilions is made from rubber, which is locally manufactured, and has been infused with lavender to mask the rubber’s scent. (Can you imagine? Scented architecture!) Interested? These digs are for sale by Sotheby’s Realty, as the designer just doesn’t have the time to jaunt to Brazil as often as he would like.
