Architecture and Design Obsession
Today, we’re embarking on an extraordinary journey through the realm of Beautiful Self-Sustaining Earthship Homes.
Earthship homes are innovative, self-sustaining buildings made from natural and recycled materials like earth-filled tires, glass bottles, and aluminum cans, pioneered by architect Michael Reynolds in the 1970s in Taos, New Mexico.
Key to Earthship design is its autonomy in utilities: electricity is generated from solar panels and wind turbines, water is harvested from rain and reused multiple times for various needs including irrigation, and sewage is treated on-site through botanical cells.
Let’s peek inside a few of these incredible residences.
The Desert Flower
Built in 1981, this eco-home is called The Desert Flower, or Ahkon Povi in the Tewa language spoken by the Pueblo people of New Mexico.
The Phoenix is the most expensive and largest rental unit in the Earthship community, measuring 5,300 square feet.
The state-of-the-art, off-grid Vallecitos, designed by Earthship Biotecture, was finished in 2018 and has all the amenities of a traditional home. T
The Waybee is situated within the Greater World Community as well. Featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this off-grid, eco-friendly home is a stunning example.
This gorgeous Earthship, called the Euro, is situated in the Global World Community in Taos, New Mexico. Its design is dramatic and angular.
Michael Reynolds and his team helped develop Earthship Brighton, the first Earthship ever built in the United Kingdom.
The Big Sky
The Big Sky, located in Montana, USA, was constructed by the nonprofit organization Seven Directions, which creates avant-garde homes based on Michael Reynolds’ concept of sustainable living.
In Santa Cruz, California, Taylor and Steph Bode built their very own Earthship. The couple built their tiny home, which is only 560 square feet, using reclaimed and repurposed materials.
And there you have it, folks, a sneak peek into the world of Earthship homes—where the only thing more renewable than the energy is the awe they inspire. Whether you’re a sustainability guru, an architecture aficionado, or just someone who thought ‘Earthship’ was the latest sci-fi blockbuster, these eco-friendly abodes show us that the future of living isn’t just about saving the planet; it’s about creatively coexisting with it. So, the next time you’re tossing a bottle into the recycling bin, remember: it could be the cornerstone of someone’s living room.
