With help of architect Luis Garrido, Lionel Messi designed a soccer ball house called the One- Zero Eco House in which he currently lives.
According to reports, the cost of designing and building the house is estimated to be a whopping 7 million euros, but for a player whose net worth is 230 million euros, that should not be much of a problem.
Messi’s house which is located 22 miles outside Barcelona in the Castelldefels area. Its is bulit on a plot shaped like a football field.
The white bricks resemble the layers of the football. From the top, the house looks like a pitch of two halves.
The plot is approximately 35km in size and is divided into 2 halves exactly like a football pitch.
One-half contains the oversized swimming pool while the other boasts the plush lawn with the soccer ball-shaped house bang in the middle.
The left half containing the entrance, when viewed from above, looks like the number 1 and when viewed together with the central main house spells out his jersey number 10.
Lionel Messi lives in his house with his partner, Antonella Roccuzzo, and two sons, Thiago and Mateo. Messi also has other houses in Spain and Argentina.
