PIERRE CARDIN'S BUBBLE PALACE
- Antti Lovag
33 Boulevard de l'Estérel, 06590 Théoule-sur-Mer, France
The Bubble Palace was built between 1975 and 1989 by the Hungarian architect Antti Lovag, and it is a complex of interconnected domes on the French Riviera at Théoule-sur-Mer, France.
The 1200 square metres house comprises a reception hall, panoramic lounge overlooking the bays of Cannes and Nice, 500-seat open-air amphitheater, 10 bedrooms, and various swimming pools and waterfalls.
Fashion designer, Pierre Cardin, bought the Bubble Palace as a holiday home at auction in the early 90s after the death of its original French industrialist owner.
In 2017, Cardin listed the home for sale with an asking price of €350m ($408m). The Bubble Palace has in its later years been open for exclusive events such as Cannes Film Festival after parties and Dior fashion shows.
