What is a future house? Have you heard of the spaceship houses that are “landing” here and there? The rare UFO-shaped homes are sometimes mistaken for art installations, but in fact, they are normal homes and people actually live in them.
The Design of the Futuro house
The most famous futuro home is a creation of the Finnish architect Matti Suuronen and was a portable ski chalet. The structure is lightweight and and fits in a variety of locations and landscapes. There are more than 100 futuro homes built between 1968 and 1978.
So, the design and the idea are not new. The houses were intended to be mobile made from fibreglass-reinforced with polyester plastic and stilt legs that ensure they stand lightly on the terrain.
Although futuros stopped being built they remain an important part of modern history.

Futuro House Airbnb
Although owning a UFO-shaped house may seem exciting, the price is often high enough to cool off the enthusiasm. However, there is an option to enjoy some time at a futuro house without actually purchasing the property. Keep in mind that there are not many buildings of this type around the world – only 60 houses are thought to survive today. Still, a few of them can be rented as a futuro house Airbnb.

There are futuro houses all over the world and they continue to challenge the imagination. From Estonia to the U.S, these homes remind us of the creative genius of their architect.
If purchasing a home like this is out of your budget, but you still want to visit one, don’t worry you can rent a futuro house Airbnb and enjoy the experience.
