(Off Grid Quest) With something like this, I see the benefits: less grass to mow, no foundation repairs from moving earth, self powered, no land to buy, no footprint on the land, no trees to cut down, no driveway to build, if you tire of the view, move it. If everybody wants one, does this mean that we’ll be selling lake space now, and every beach front lot could be looking at a home in their way? I hope not, but man this is appealing!
After years of research EcoFloLife has developed the WaterNest 100 eco-friendly floating housing unit, exclusively designed by the renown Italian architect Giancarlo Zema. It is an enveloping more of 100 sqm residential unit, 12 m in diameter and 4 m high, made entirely of recycled glued laminated timber and a recycled aluminium hull. Balconies are conveniently located on the sides and thanks to the large windows, permit enjoyment of fascinating views over the water.
Bathroom and kitchen skylights are located on the wooden roof, as well as 60 sqm of amorphous photovoltaic panels capable of generating 4 kWp which are used for the internal needs of the residential unit. The interior of WaterNest 100 can include a living room, dining area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom or have other configurations according to the different housing or working needs – ideal for those wishing to live independently, exclusively and in complete harmony with nature.
WaterNest 100 can be positioned along river courses, lakes, bays, atolls and sea areas with calm waters. The use of materials and sustainable production systems make this unit recyclable up to as much as 98%. In addition, thanks to a sophisticated system of internal natural micro-ventilation and air conditioning, it is classified as a low-consumption residential habitat.
WaterNest 100 has several possible configurations, depending on the different housing or working needs. It is perfect like an ecological house, office, lounge bar, restaurant, shop or exhibition floating space. The selected furnishings in the EcoFloLife catalogue are top design, eco-friendly and elegant, and thus meet the most demanding contemporary needs.
