Lionel Messi having soccer-ball shaped house built in Spain

October 8th, 2013

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is one of the premier faces in football. So, is it that unreasonable to see him living in a house shaped like a football?

A concept designed by architect Luis de Garrido with Messi in mind has this idea well on its way to fruition.

Messi’s work life revolves around soccer, and it appears his home life might as well. A birds-eye view gives the first look at the numerous football-inspired designs, with an overall look of a football pitch.

The house itself comes in the shape of a football, and appears to be two stories. Our favorite subtle nod to Messi’s profession? The front entrance and the ball forming the shape of a “10,” the Argentine magician’s number.

Casa de Messi is still in the design phase, but it would be interesting to see how this would look up close and personal.
