Curved Crustacean Cabins
Organic Scapes' Living Aleutian Home is Entirely Nature-Inspired

{SummaryTitle}

In a project like Organic Scapes’ Living Aleutian Home, the architectural notion of attention to site was well explored. Not only does a building like this seem to preserve the beautiful views that surround it, but it takes into account considerations like the sun’s trajectory, the wind directions and more.

The bowing shell of the dwelling was actually influenced by the protective exoskeleton of a lobster. But here, with its smooth bands and rounded edges, it guides the prevailing winds across it lightly, rather than the ocean’s currents.

A skin of solar cells and a collection of wind turbines help to harness the power of the environment and expansive windowing in Organic Scapes’ Living Aleutian Home illuminates the interior.
