Casa Ojalá, an emblem of the future of sustainable luxury created by the Italian architect Beatrice Bonzanigo, is now located among the hills of Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco in Montalcino, Tuscany, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia. This luxurious guest suite with bed, bath, and living spaces and a private roof terrace is surrounded by the hills, in the 2000 hectares of the Resort of Castiglion del Bosco.
The main platform of Casa Ojalá is 6.20 m diameter (~27 sqm living area) and the roof platform is 8m diameter, with a height from the ground 6m. It is self-standing and doesn’t require digging or underground foundations. The cylindrical casa ojalá is equipped with a manual mechanism that is composed of ropes, handles made of soft natural leather, pulleys and cranks. The cabin has in itself more than 1000 configurations that customers can play with by using the included mechanical systems.
The floor area is maximized with two beds hidden underneath the mahogany floor. Merry-go-round terrace can be accessed by an internal ladder. The suite even includes a sculptural bathtub to absorb and enjoy the beautiful vistas in total relaxation.
The sustainable casa is made from carefully selected timbers, fabrics crafted from recycled plastic, and handmade ceramic. It also integrates photovoltaic panels, a rainwater recovery system, and a black water depuration advanced biological plant. This all allows the structure to be transported to even the most remote locations. Casa Ojalá is most suitable for temperate climates and includes a stove to conquer seasonal chill.
