designed by NOEM, a group which takes its name from its desire to produce buildings with ‘no emissions’, ‘the spaceship home’ was completed for a client who wanted a quickly constructed dwelling to enjoy panoramic vistas of his plot. the project’s polished metallic exterior was the user’s aesthetic choice, with a large terrace oriented to present views of its surroundings. the unit is composed of prefabricated wooden modules attached to a metal frame four meters above the ground. access to the dwelling is via a restored airplane stairway.

referencing the client’s love of star wars, a wall-mounted panel brings together the home’s facilities and presides over a restrained and functional interior. from this console, the user can control the entire house. the lighting, temperature, security, access and sound systems are domotic, while two iPads control all of the house’s main functions. the shutters can be raised or lowered depending on the time of day or desired temperature, the metal walls can change color, and exterior lights can be set to different modes.

the building is constructed from three prefabricated modules which arrive on-site almost completely finished. consequently, on site work only involves the unit’s assembly. one of the three modules contains the apartment’s facilities and equipment, seen as the home’s technological hub. the other two are solid wooden structures perforated with large openings, which allow inhabitants to enjoy external views.
