This Futuro is located in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. It is one of only a few remaining in New Zealand and is now officially on the market to the highest bidder/offer.
This original 'tiny house' appears listed as the 'New Brighton' Futuro in the published book 'FUTURO - Tomorrow's House from Yesterday' first printed in 1998 by Desura Oy Ltd in Helsinki, Finland.
This Futuro has been relocated twice over the past 10 years, making public appearances in the Christchurch Botanical Gardens and The Cathedral Square. It has likely had the most public viewings of any Futuro in our country and as such, could be considered a celebrity!
Christchurch was the production location for 'Futuro Homes Ltd'. Only 12 units were produced here for the entire country in the early 1970's, including two prototypes produced for the 1974 Commonwealth Games at the newly opened QE2 stadium.
