The Star Wars Home was inspired by the cult classic sci-fi franchise without referencing it too heavily. Although the exterior boasts the same lines as the Sandcrawler from 'A New Hope' and also has the similar militaristic gray skin of the Death Star, overall the Star Wars Home can also be categorized as a modern example of brutalist architecture.

Full of sharp angles and shallow recesses, the atypical Star Wars Home is much more minimal and contemporary on the inside than one would first assume. Built for a young South Korean family, the concept behind the design was greatly influenced by the husband's childhood dream of becoming an astronaut. Everything considered, the affordable $200,000 price tag to create the Star Wars Home is very impressive.
