The UFO-like Domespace rotating wooden house

The UFO-like Domespace rotating wooden houseTaking up a large section of the Eco Habitat zone at the recent Viv'expo exhibition in Bordeaux was a walk-in cutaway model of a rotating wooden house known as Domespace. Built on a central concrete pedestal, the Domespace home benefits from little or no damp penetration, and its aerodynamic shape has been found to be resistant to cyclonic winds of up to 174mph (280kph). It also makes the most of passive solar energy, has a central chimney with a designer open fire and is surprisingly spacious.
The protective cocoon doesn't stop at wind resistance either. Domespace says that "every Domespace is erected over an elastomeric belt that works as a 'silencer block'... like a piece of rubber that cushions vibrations." The structure has been found to withstand earthquake activity registering up to eight on the Richter scale.
