Bill Gates has become the latest tech billionaire to take a stab at creating a futuristic home for the bloxburgh neighborhood in New York.
Gates’ new venture, Bloxburgh House, is based on a series of buildings that were designed by architectural firm D.T. Anderson.
The idea is to create a house that would be “bloxberg” (blazing) for the area’s residents.
The new house would be made up of a number of interconnected towers that would serve as an “ecosystem.”
The towers would contain multiple rooms that would “combine” to form an “enclosed world” that would allow residents to stay in their homes.
The site of the new Bloxberg House, in Bloxburg, New York City.
The building will be designed to be “a great place to live” for the residents, Gates told the New York Times, which first reported the project.
The proposed house would have five stories and “a massive open kitchen, a spacious living area, and a full-size balcony,” the Times reported.
The project has been described as a “totally new kind of design” and a “world of possibilities.”
The concept is based around the idea of “interconnectedness” and “dynamic interplay between the spaces.”
“The whole idea is that, if you want to be in one place, you can be in another, but if you’re living there you’re actually going to feel connected,” the website states.
“The idea is not just to be connected, it’s to feel that connection in a way that you wouldn’t otherwise.”
In an interview with Bloomberg, the developer said the project was “inspired by our city,” but “we have a different approach.”
The proposal is a departure from Gates’ previous projects.
The Microsoft co-founder told Bloomberg that he is “a big fan” of the “blazing” theme, and is interested in “finding ways to make it more livable.”
He told the publication that the house would include “open space for people to go out and enjoy, but also to have the privacy of the home.”
The developer added that “a lot of what I’m looking for in a house is not necessarily to be cool or modern, it has to be kind of classic and simple.”
In addition to the Bloxburys, Gates has also previously collaborated with a developer on a new project called “Bloxberg Garden.”
The project will feature “an open-air patio, terraces, and public gardens,” according to a press release from Bloxbergh.
The developer plans to construct the project in “the heart of downtown Brooklyn.”
