In what’s perhaps one of the more unique celebrity green homes we’ve ever seen, Spanish architect Luis de Garrido has designed a 25-room, off-grid retreat for model Naomi Campbell.

Shaped in the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health, the creation will reportedly be built on the private Isla Playa de Cleopatra in Turkey. Green features include photovoltaic panels, geothermal heating, and a rainwater harvesting system. The home is rumored to be a gift to Campbell by her longtime boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin.

    Why in the world are we labeling 25-room mega mansions “eco homes”? Of the grid or not, this is a massive waste of resources. Do we really need to pretend that this is a green solution?

      yah, and besides that, probably it will be empty 360 days of the year because it aint her home, its just for holiday.
      naaww, as usual, i refuse to be impressed by what the rich and greedy are doing … eco or not.

    I agree – this is crazy – think of the waste that went into this home – just because the end result may be green does not mean it really is. Stop the madness and stop lifting up people as hero’s who are not.

    Ok, looks cool and all, but I agree with the above comments — is a 25 room home really “eco”? Build a tiny house or revamp a shipping container and then maybe we can chat…

    I like it… The Eye of Horus… definitely like it.

    Best I can tell it doesn’t have 25-bedrooms, maybe 25-rooms depending on what you count as a room. By my count it is 13-bedrooms, 14-baths, 2-halfbaths, 2-dining areas, living area, family area, game area, theater, kitchen/breakfast area, sunroom, and exercise room. It would make a nice tropical bed and breakfast.
