To celebrate October 21st 2015…the day when we all go BACK TO THE FUTURE with one of the movie world most loved franchises, we’ve put together our 5 of our favourite futuristic custom homes that have our flux capacitors reaching 1.21 gigawatts!
These architects definitely have us exclaiming “Great Scott!” and we think you’ll agree that these designs REALLY are McFly!
Remember to share this post with your friends. If our calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 shares… you’re gonna see some serious s#!t
Mexican architect and conceptual designer Juan Carlos Ramos decided to try and see, entering this piece into an architectural competition after a good deal of trial, error and experimentation.
In the simplest terms, he started with shared common spaces like a living room and kitchen on the main floor and worked up toward more private areas, reserving the peak for a nice secluded library space. A spiral staircase wraps up to connect the various levels.
Even a garage and balcony managed to make it into the master plan, accessed via a system of slot-like windows and sliding openings that maintain the continuous pyramid shape along the exterior of the structure.
While the functionality of the form is somewhat debatable overall (the steep angles creating somewhat awkward interior spaces, not to mention construction costs), it would at least do a great job shedding dead loads during the winter and reducing wind loads in storms, being comprised entirely of angled surfaces.

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation. [source]
