Many have considered trading their houses for a life on the water and have gone through with it. However, many people don’t like the idea of living in a cramped area and having below deck living quarters. If you’re on the fence about it, you should look at this floating, solar-powered home designed by renowned Italian architect Giancarlo Zema. Zema’s design, called “Waternest 100,” had been designed for years by EcoFloLife in response to Earth’s climate warming and rising sea levels that would irrevocably change our coastlines.
The Waternest 100 is also intended to be part of a new generation of energy-efficient homes to accommodate our changing planet and lives. The 1,000-square-foot home is made from recycled timber and a recycled aluminum hull, and its design includes skylights, balconies, and large windows offering sweeping views of the natural surroundings. There’s also a solar panel….ON THE ROOF, and the home can be set to float atop any calm body of water. That way, if our world gets swallowed by water (a’la Waterworld), at least we can float away in style.
