Have you ever wondered what humans’ houses would look like in year 3001? We can’t really predict what interior design style would be trending some thousand years from now, but this house certainly have the looks of a house in a distant future—it is very futuristic, indeed. Designed by A-cero Architects and located in Galicia, Spain, this house manages to look very cool without feeling alien. It has all the awe-inspiring style fitting for a time yet to come, but it also feels welcoming and intimate like how homes should feel like.
White is clearly the dominant color of this house, accompanied by black and grey (and a lot of the grey shades come from the steel used in various furniture and appliances). While to some people that might look too monotone, generally the color combination gives the house itsclean, edgy, futuristic feel. But don’t worry, this house is not absolutely monochromatic. Besides the predominant white, black, and grey, there are some occasional splashes of colors in the decorations—which are mostly abstract paintings—although those colors are never too bright or vibrant, thus still being in harmony with the more understated grace of the dominant monochrome palette.
Another feature of this house that makes it look futuristic is the lighting. The white paint is accentuated by white recessed lighting in various spots—such as the curving nook on the ceiling or the walls, or on the stairs—resulting in a clean, elegant, and sophisticated brightness. The materials used in the design also helps. Steel is used for several parts of the furniture, the appliances in the kitchen, and some decorations like the lamp over the dining table and the spheres near the stairs. But the furniture—tables, cabinets, etc.—are mostly made of glossy plastic or other shiny materials, which still successfully bring out the futuristic feel of the design. Besides that, there’s also one very interesting use of glass: as a curving low wall that functions as a partition or railing of the staircase.
In spite all those futuristic design elements, the house still manages to not look overly alien, and still feel like a proper human home. It still supplies you with all the things you will need to live a comfortable human life, and its furniture still looks familiar—like normal furniture in normal houses, albeit very modern—and not twisted or weird just to be futuristic. This is, of course, a welcome touch. It helps the house stay “grounded” in spite of its futuristic majesty, and makes it look humanely elegant.This house is cool, but most importantly, this house is a proper home, where your heart can reside.
