Advancing the Housing Industry with Futuristic ideas!
The original Futuro house is a round, prefabricated house designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, of which fewer than 100 were built during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The shape, reminiscent of a flying saucer, and the structure's airplane hatch entrance has made the houses sought after by collectors and by Airbnb renters. The Futuro was composed of fiberglass-reinforced polyester plastic, polyester-polyurethane, and poly(methyl methacrylate), measuring 4 meters (13 feet) high and 8 meters (26 feet) in diameter. Unfortunately, the company went out of business. Fewer than 100 were made and it is estimated that today around 60 of the original Futuro Houses survive, owned mostly by private individuals. Due to their use of wood on the interior structures, rotting and decay have been problematic for anyone wanting to restore one. Today many people have tried to locate one for the purposes of off-grid living, but also as a steady income stream by renting them out on Airbnb.
The reincarnation of this iconic engineering masterpiece all began when a group of engineers wanted a fiberglass tiny house that would be completely self sufficient and never rot or corrode, saw a CNN Business video on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZ8jnR09eLE, that said there will never be another Futuro House ever again. The engineers decided to take up the challenge and create an all new redesigned house and that is where Futuro Houses,LLC took its roots.
The engineers at Futuro Houses LLC have years of experience in designing and manufacturing molded fiberglass composite products, ranging from offshore high-performance powerboats to RV travel trailers.
With their unique designs, both the UFO and Tiny Houses promise to provide comfort and luxury to off-grid housing enthusiasts.
