A Floating Glass House on Miami’s Coast

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.

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.
