Winter House by Andrés Reisinger and Alba de la Fuente

Jan 25, 2022

Digital artist Andrés Reisinger’s newest NFT, Winter House, brings a building designed with architect Alba de la Fuente to virtual life in vivid detail.

The project takes shape as virtual dwelling with clear geometries and soothing colors. The duo envisions the space with an atmosphere of tranquility for the coldest seasons — a winter heaven in the metaverse — and a continuation of Reisinger’s dream-like aesthetic.

Inspired by Dieter Rams‘ early 1960’s designs, the building is supported by a large concrete structure that erupts from the soil; the imposing floating floor is juxtaposed with the glass walls that invite natural light to permeate the space.

With full height windows, nature becomes itself an integral part of the house. The residence’s contrasts and dualities are vital elements to create a distinctive habitat that revolves around intimacy and seclusion. Each zone of the house is designed to seem open and immersed in the winter landscape while at the same time convey a sense of intimacy and warmth.

"We wanted to picture what this time of year looks like in the metaverse, and so we gathered all the feelings that we associate winter with – mainly stillness and comfort – and transported them into this parallel reality." — Andrés Reisinger
