Life Off-Shore: House on the Water

Built in Greece, near the island of Zante in Navagio Beach, this breathtaking house on the water comes from formodesign, and was created as “a rental house for people who want to be independent”. What a sight! Just imagine leaving all your problems behind and getting lost somewhere in the sweet Greek Islands in this fantastic floating house. Its amazing exterior shape is the one that strikes you at first, but let yourself be further fascinating by this buildings’ extraordinary features. First off, because of the orientation, the house benefits from a maximum of solar energy. The design is an Eco friendly one, based mainly on alternative sources of energy, such as water desalination and recycling,  tidal and solar energy systems.  – via

    Hi,

    I’ve been to Zante this year, on Navaggio (Shipwreck) Beach, and on the whole cruise around the island, but i haven’t seen anything even distantly similar to this house.

    Don’t get me wrong, these pictures are from that beach, but house isn’t there. I have few pictures to confirm that. It seems to me that, this is only a concept house.

    Hello, Goran!

    Our sources tell us that the house already exists but if you say you haven’t seen it, then perhaps it is still in a concept phase and should be built somewhere this year.

    Hi,

    Really impressive idea, but I wish that house existed. It could be an honour for us….

    Please notice that I am a Greek …

    I’m sorry, but those renderings aren’t even that good… It’s just not real. Just think about it. If it were, close up photos of the house in the water would be amazing. but there arent any except for the poor rendering on top and the beach photo montage with the tiny tiny thing in the water.
