new york-based design studio LARS BÜRO has created an off-grid shelter to house the recently unveiled tesla cybertruck. the architectural concept, dubbed ‘cybunker’, features a monocoque structure inspired by the new electric vehicle.
built of durable steel and armored glass, LARS BÜRO designed the cybunker with the same vision of strength and resilience seen in the tesla cybertruck. the 1,800 square-foot interior layout of the cybunker can be customized to serve limitless functions, including an apartment, shelter, storage, or other commercial uses. while maximally protective, the unit features panoramic views through its lateral windows made of armored glass, with skylights allowing additional sunlight to enter the space.
two folding gates reveal a 600 square-foot depot able to accommodate an array of equipment and vehicles -including trucks that don’t fit in standard garages. for more extreme or hostile environments, this depot can be equipped to function as an airlock, allowing a safe transition between exterior and interior.
at the base of the cybunker, an infrastructural ‘motherboard’ houses all of the unit’s utility and computer systems, cisterns, pumps, as well as a battery bank that stores all energy generated on the roof’s seamless PV cladding,’ the agency explains. ‘whether sited on the most remote location, or as a man cave in a suburban lot, cybunker guarantees a versatile and futureproof system that can be deployed to withstand the toughest demands.’
