The Houses on Mars are built to make it an artificial habitat for colonists. While houses on Earth have merely a temperature effect, on Mars it must provide:

  • a high air pressure
  • a completely different composition of air than the Mars atmosphere
  • insulation to regulate temperature inside the habitat
  • protection from radiation
  • protection from meteorites

Houses should be connected to each other to allow people to move freely from one house to another without the need to wear a heavy space suit.
