Space age dwelling: The Brand New Studio Earthship is a secluded, self-powered retreat in the New Mexico desert.

Perhaps the most similar in likeness to Luke Skywalker’s home planet Tatooine and the Lars homestead, the terracotta-colored Sleep Pod Earth Domes are set in the California desert and can sleep families of up to four. Dome walls are built using Earthbag technology that keep buildings cool in the summer and warm in winter.

An aerial view of the Modern Green Circular Dome suggests a more illustrious past for the resort, as though it crash landed in the middle of a Thai jungle forest and decided to stay. Like spokes on a wheel, individual, spherical pods jut out from a circular walkway and are covered with jungle overgrowth. Pods are clean and bright, furnished with beds, full bathrooms, TVs, communal dining room and pool.
