Architecture: The Spaceship Home, in Madrid, by Noem

From the architects. The Spaceship Home was born out of a project for a client who wanted a quick, intelligent design construction to enjoy the panoramic view of his plot. His passion for the cinema, home automation and comfort did the rest.

The futuristic and ground-breaking proposal was his aesthetic choice, and the large terrace oriented to the views defined the layout.

The house is composed of wooden prefabricated modules which are attached to a metal frame 4m above ground level. Access is by a “real airplane” staircase that belonged to Spanair, and which, restored and modernized, recognizes and welcomes its owner.

A mobile device provides automatic control for the whole house which when accessed by the ladder starts to open an impressive door with a pantographic opening. An aesthetic metal “Star Wars” control panel centralizes the house’s facilities and presides over a restrained and functional interior.

The architectural proposal stands out for its polished metallic exterior, the integration of the facilities, services and architectural details in a “space” context, and for the metal legged structure that connects the house with the ground.

The building is constructed with 3 prefabricated modules which arrive almost completely finished from the workshop-it only remains to assemble and connect them on site.

Despite not being oriented to the south, the wooden structure and the insulation of all exterior walls make this home a Class A energy certification building.

From the control panel, the user can control the entire house. The lighting, temperature, security, access and sound systems are domotic, and two ipads allow control to all house functions. The shutters can be raised or lowered depending on the time of day or desired temperature, the metal walls can change color, and exterior lights can be programmed in different modes.
