Each year, more and more outlandish designs make their way into homes in the form of extravagant décor, glorious architecture, and futuristic and functional homes. With the power of artificial intelligence getting stronger each day, it is easier now than ever to bring concepts for your dream home to life and create something you love. Architectural designer and digital artist Maria Dudkina has brought many stunning concepts to life on her Instagram page using AI art, and one of her more stunning creations is this beautiful Aerodrome Home.
The Aerodrome Home has taken repurposing to a whole new level, incorporating a sleek modern design with an aeroplane that has been fully transformed into a beautiful luxury home.
Incorporating a modern black and gold colour palette that contrasts the grey, snowy environment in which the structure was built, the Aerodrome Home is both brooding and warm simultaneously. Elements of concrete, metal and glass can be seen throughout the structure, making up the primary materials the house was built with and blending seamlessly with the aeroplane at the top.
Glass windows and railings are met with metal housings and hardware along the stairs, the balconies and the windows, allowing the natural light of the snowy surroundings to enter the home and making the whole structure seem inviting.
The golden glow of the lighting, flooring, and stairs perfectly matches the gold accents of the repurposed plane that sits proudly at the peak of the structure.
The main bedroom of this luxurious abode looks to be situated in the cockpit of the plane, using expansive windows to let the light of the frosted mountains into the room.
Rather than get rid of the elements that remind you that this structure is a repurposed plane, the design chooses to embrace its roots by accentuating the hardware while still making the room feel cosy and inviting.
While the cockpit has been altered to make more space for the bed, the pilot’s chairs have been kept as plush headboards to keep the theme alive. Overhead ventilation has been replaced with golden lighting that perfectly contrasts the exterior surroundings, giving the room an inviting atmosphere.
The décor choices in this room are an essential element that ties everything together. The plush, downy blanket, plethora of pillows, and fur-lining of the bedspread bring a beautiful, cosy warmth into the room, directly contrasted by the stunning view of the mountains outside. Warm lighting from the golden bedside lamps does the same to bring warmth and intimacy into an otherwise cold and futuristic space.
The guest bedroom has been separated from the main bedroom by situating it at the back of the plane. It gives tenants and visitors privacy to enjoy the cosy interior and stunning surroundings in peace.
A headboard is made entirely unnecessary thanks to the stunning round window behind the bed, giving a glorious view of the structure’s surroundings. Much like in the case of the main bedroom, the guest bedroom has removed all overhead hardware to make space for overhead lighting. Plenty of light completely opens the otherwise dark space that would feel too small without ample windows and natural and artificial light.
Plush, warm bedding chosen in colours that match the décor of the rest of the house gives the small space a luxurious feel. The warm yellow contrasts the darker charcoal shades and cold white in the guest bedroom. The addition of festive decorations gives the space a cosy holiday vibe.
Appearing to be a part of the middle of the luxury plane-turned-dwelling, there is nothing that screams a lap of luxury quite like having a parlour. A quiet, insulated place to drink while taking in the surrounding view, the parlour has plush leather seats and a fixed table by the window.
Cold metal and glass are met with warm liquid tones thanks to the fully stocked bar shelves with plenty of choice for visitors to enjoy and the plush and inviting nature of the couches. One could easily imagine having a nightcap with a loved one here while watching the sunset over the mountains.
Another installation in the Aerodrome Home that makes it suitable for visitors is the cosy dining room. Intimate yet well-lit spaces are the name of the game and what turns what would be a cramped plane into an inviting environment to enjoy a wonderful meal with loved ones.
A modestly sized table, just big enough to fit six place settings, is surrounded by what looks like repurposed seats from a first-class plane. Of course, the central theme of black and gold has been maintained in the room once again, with black leather seats having gold trim, the cool shiny metal of the table complemented by warm gold trim, and the overhead lighting and ceiling having a similar theme.
As with the rest of the home, large windows allow plenty of natural light into the space, opening it up and making it feel intimate and cosy compared to the frigid surroundings. Luxurious place settings that match the scatter cushions and the rest of the room tie the dining room together, making the space feel like a hotel or luxury bed and breakfast.
The bathroom is one of the only spaces in the structure that hasn’t kept the theme of black and gold. Changing gold for silver hardware and accents and including colder white light makes the room feel well-kept and sterile. The change in hardware and lighting also creates a decorated separation between the bathroom and the rest of the house, making it clear that this is a space for relaxing and serving one’s needs.
Smaller windows over the auxiliary counter and basin allow more privacy in the washroom. In contrast, the left side counter is slightly raised compared to the basin, perfect for getting ready and storing everything needed.
All of these stunning elements come together to create a luxurious concept home. While it might seem outlandish at first to have a home built into a repurposed plane, plenty of hotels and restaurants have pioneered the same idea, turning abandoned planes, trains, and even cruise vessels into immaculate destinations for their visitors.
The design seems impractical for full-time living. Still, as a destination stay for a honeymoon, a cosy visit to the frosty woods, or a place to get away and feel like you are flying above the clouds thanks to the stunning surroundings, this concept design is stunning.
