Futuro House (Raglan/ New Zealand)



This out-of-this-world home is owned by a retired sea captain. There was a Playboy magazine with an article about Hugh Hefner (who had one of these houses) on board the captain's ship in the 1970's. There'd been some discussion on board about the house and by coincidence when they berthed at Tauranga his crew saw one in a paddock and the captain bought it on the spot. Initially he had it on a section at Whangaparoa for several years, then moved it to Raglan when he retired.

  1. I remember one of these in Wellington when I was a kid. It was used as an office on a car dealers yard in the late 1970s. Could even be this one as I imagine there weren't many of them in NZ, maybe just the two?
