Star Wars-inspired house uses the force


The Starwars House was constructed for a family of four on a relatively low budget and shows a sense of fun while remaining a practical family home.

Completed in 2013, the unusual project was conceived when an airline pilot and his former ground crew wife approached Moon Hoon architects to construct a house with a small physical footprint for themselves and their children. Using the fact that the husband had wanted to be an astronaut in his youth as a jumping-off point, the firm brainstormed and eventually settled upon a dwelling that references Star Wars from the outside.

Despite the home's unusual shape, the interior is comfortable and practical.
