With each headline taking us one step closer to the apocalypse, now may be the time to commission somewhere remote to escape to. The ‘Superhouse’ by architect firm Magnus Ström is just the ticket (a few million quid depending). The concept home is ready to build on a range of suggested locations, including on top of a ski slope, on a private island or even on the UK coast; complete with a 165-foot infinity pool, panoramic views and bespoke interiors.
Available to enquire at Superhouse, price on request.
