Created by French company Arkup, this floating glass house is the first in a series about to anchor along Miami Beach.
Much more than a house bobbing along with the waves, this revolutionary design is more like a live-in luxury yacht. Built to withstand the storms and hurricanes that frequently ravage this part of the States, French creators, Nicolas Derouin and Arnaud Duguet, say this new real estate product can be a main residence or a mobile secondary home.
A Fleet of Floating Houses along Miami Beach
Offering a unique lifestyle on the water, this high-tech innovation, built by Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, is fully-powered by solar energy which is plentiful in the region. Residents of this house boat can live there totally off the grid. And when transformed into a house on stilts, it can serve as an event space, restaurant, or even an art gallery.
A New-Age House Boat with Endless Possibilities
This floating house can move at 12 km/h and has four bedrooms, a kitchen, living area with panoramic views, gym/hot tub, and a modular open-air balcony so you can dive into the Floridian waters at any time. You can add as many options as you like to make it even more luxurious !
