Modern Prefab UFO Tiny House from the 60s


This is a totally out of this world tiny house designed by architect Matti Suuronen in 1968.

The nature of it’s design reflects back to the 60s and 70s.

It was accommodated to fit up to 8 people and constructed out of reinforced plastic.

They had a plan to mass produce it (prefab) to make it affordable for everyone.

It was light-weight so it can be mobile but had to be transported by a helicopter.

Anyways, here are the specifications from the original futuro website along with more photos of it below:

    •  polyester exterior 
    •  colors white, light-blue, yellow or red
    •  height 4 meters
    •  diameter 8 meters
    •  weight 4000 kilos
    •  floor space 25 square meters
    •  20 oval shaped windows
    •  retractable stairs entrance
    •  6 bed-seats plus 1 double bed-seat
    • central fire place and bbq
    •  kitchen
    •  bathroom with toilet

  1. I saw a similar space ship home for sale in Chattanooga area but that was online. Wish I could have seen it in person. It looked similar to this one but I think it was larger. YOU could park under it and climb the retractable stairs into the dome. I would love this design for a backyard guest cottage or retreat. Know where I can find one???

  2. I think it would be great for shtf scenario switch the retractable star on top and bury underground or pressure secure it an put in ocean anchored to the seafloor. Great windows for that or a boathouse since it’s made of plastics. Poundage isn’t much on water:) just a few thoughts that came to mind. Walk softly.
