"The minute you begin to do what you really want to do, it's really a different kind of life"
Richard Buckminster Fuller


During the construction of the Base, individual houses were highly functional but totally impersonal mobile homes. Until a group of scientists of the "Fullerene Squad" popularized the idea of houses with geodesic dome shapes.
These domes easily dismantlable and rebuildable : They are accessible to all kind of residents (including non-permanent) and their owners can customize them as they like.

When the "Soft Studio" project was launched, residents weren't allowed to set up their home as they wished because of the 12 KW/day limit. But after a few years of trial and error, there are now hundreds of "less than 12KW/day" certified models, and it's therefore possible to have an almost unique interior.
Even though this type of housing offers fewer options than those with straight walls (because there is less space), that kind of design can really help separate work from personal life. Even if you can go back to work at any time, it's sometimes good to forget the Base for a few hours.

A house can be occupied for 20 years (perhaps to remind residents of the "principle of impermanence"), but the Base advises to move every 15 years in order to not create ghetto.


Raya's house :
Diameter = 10m
Height = 5m

Living area = 75m²
Height of living space = 2,80m
Living space = 220m³
Total volume = 260m³
Thickness of walls = 10cm

Surface of the technical room under the roof = 45m²
Height under roof = 1,60m

Gami's house :
Diameter = 12m
Height = 6m

Living area = 120m²
Height of living space = 2,80m at least (because of the atrium)
Living space = 400m³
Total volume = 450m³
Thickness of walls = 10cm

Surface of the technical room under the roof = 60m²
Height under roof = 1,60m
