Phygital stately homes: MetaReal

One Sotheby’s International Realty has announced a partnership with Voxel Architects and Gabe Sierra under which the group will create the phygital villa “MetaReal”. The MetaReal is an 11,000 square foot home that is actively being built in Miami alongside a direct virtual counterpart. The MetaReal virtual mansion is created within the metaverse Sandbox platform and will be directly linked to a collectible digital NFT asset.

Gabe Sierra said that “the home’s metaverse counterpart will act as an extension of the real world home,” which means the owner will be able to use their digital home in almost any way they can use the physical one, with the except to use it as a living space. The digital home can be decorated and organized for a variety of events, such as virtual interviews, meetings, get-togethers and other social events.
