As aerial taxis are moving closer to realization, innovators in the architecture industry are pushing the development of flying houses. London-based architectural firm Studio McLeod and design consultants Ekkist's collaboration explores the possibility of such a concept.
The duo envisioned "how people could live in 100 years time" — a prompt issued by Dezeen x MINI Living Future Urban Home Competition. Dubbed 'Hour Glass,' the proposed design for flying houses boasts a hot air balloon as a catalyst for transportation. The aerial home is surely an interesting concept as it will allow individuals to efficiently move their home and travel between different environments, whether that be urban or rural.
Studio McLeod and Ekkist's flying houses draw inspiration from "the nomadic heritage of humans."
