Alien Copper house kitchen by Muru and Pere
A layout that looks like little green men just crash landed into your backyard. The design was fashioned by Estonian architects Muru and Pere. The kitchen, situated at Tabasalu in Estonia, was easy to fabricate. Two circular plates were placed on a tool shed, which had two pillars. The plates used for roofing have polished copper bands running across. The metallic touch ups really give the kitchen an outlandish look. The seats arranged in a circle along the periphery of the roof make the space look real neat. People munching on grub encircle the cook, who whips away delicacies standing in the center.

Besides cleaning and filtering, they also provide supplies like vegetable soap and fresh water. They also wipe out smokes and fumes. LED lights twinkle to indicate if you are cooking or washing. Shut utensils in the sink to clean them automatically. The kitchen reminds you of all the automated utilities needed when you are outbound in the galaxy. However, this intelligent design is still a concept.
