At the end of last year, Tesla presented the prototype of the cyber truck. The vehicle made headlines worldwide – also because of its appearance, which transformed the clean lines and edges of elegant sports cars from the 1970s into a brute pick-up design.
The right house for the end time truck
Apparently, the presentation of the futuristic pick-up inspired a Russian architecture office to design the right house for the car. When chief architect Alex Wizhevsky of Modern House Architecture & Design saw the presentation of Elon Musk's Cybertruck, he wondered what kind of person would drive such an armored car and which house would suit him.
"Apparently the car was created to survive in extreme conditions. It seems to me that we need a well-protected house, a kind of fortress, a bunker in which one can safely survive any threat."
Exciting even without zombies
The presentation fluctuates between serious elements of a modern atrium house and influences from the horror series "Resident Evil." Located in the middle of a treeless steppe, the dwelling should not only look good, but also withstand bombs and zombies. A whimsy allusion to the fear of the super-rich of uprisings and apocalypses, which manifests itself worldwide in the construction of basements and bunkers.
It remains to be seen whether the sloping walls can now ward off really rushing zombie hordes. Alex Wizhevsky said that his design was inspired by both Tesla design and submarine construction. "When developing the CyberHouse, we used the principle of building modern nuclear submarines that consist of several protective covers," said Wizhevsky. "The multi-layered housing proposed in our project offers maximum security against various disasters." The house is designed for complete autonomy. The electricity is supplied by solar panels and wind turbines. The aim was to guarantee the survival of the residents for a year.
Industrial design language
In fact, the office from Russia succeeded in an interesting reinterpretation of the atrium house. On the outside, the building appears cool and repellent, on the inside it opens up to a spacious courtyard. There is no client for the construction of a CyberHouse yet, but the architect assumes that several houses that follow this design language will be sold and built. The prices start at the equivalent of 775,000 euros.
For Modern House Architecture & Design, the daring presentation is an opportunity to give potential customers an indication of future architecture. "The world architecture and now also the automotive industry are moving in the direction of simplification of shapes, maximum usefulness and manufacturability," said Wizhevsky.
