Futuristic 'Cyberhouse' Is Inspired By Tesla's Cybertruck

A Russian design studio have created a futuristic three-storey home based on Tesla's Cybertruck. The architectural concept was created by St. Petersburg-based Modern House Architecture & Design as a concrete-and-steel bunker that takes its style cues from the futuristic Cybertruck. Not only is the home a perfect aesthetic match for the electric pickup, but the firm also claims it will be tough enough to withstand a nuclear war or a zombie apocalypse. "It is a self-sufficient multi-level bunker designed for living in a range of extreme conditions, from a Z Day to nuclear fallout," the firm wrote in a press release. Resembling a spaceship hangar out of a movie, the Cyberhouse features 3,230-square-feet of living space and can comfortably house up to seven adults. The main entrance would lead to a central atrium containing an elevator that would lift the car up to the second floor. Bedrooms and living spaces would be arranged around this atrium on the ground floor, with a roof deck above. While it's unclear exactly what the interior looks like, it will feature an atrium with a subterranean parking space for the Cybertruck accessible by elevator. Meanwhile, the structure's angular exterior is made of concrete encased in heavy-duty steel, has doors that act as airlocks and is equipped with armoured windows to protect from any potential threats. "When I saw the presentation of Elon Musk's Cybertruck, I had a question: 'what would the owner of such a car be like', because this car is a super protected armoured car," Wizhevsky told website Dezeen. "Apparently, it was created in order to survive in extreme conditions. It seems to me that we need a well-protected house, a fortress, a bunker, where you can safely survive any threat." Tesla founder Elon Musk unveiled the bulletproof electric Cybertruck in November 2019. The radical design divided opinion on social media, with people calling it both "courageous" and "ridiculous". Although there are currently no plans to build the Cyberhouse, Wizhevsky thinks that the home shows what residential architecture could be like in the future. "I believe that this is the design of the future, because the speed of life is growing rapidly and maximum simplicity and utility come to the forefront of architecture," he explained. "Clients often come to us with unique requests that need to be implemented, so for us the Cyberhouse has become a definite look forward, into the future, because it is difficult to imagine this car standing in a traffic jam in an urban environment into which it would fit harmoniously," he continued. "There is simply no such residential architecture." When: 10 Jan 2020 Credit: Modern House Architecture & Design/Cover Images **EDITORIAL USE ONLY.
