Schwimmhausboot: A Green Modern Floating Home

Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann of design firm Confused Direction have designed a lovely floating home. it is ecofriendly, too, with zero-emissions, a green roof, and materials such as 250 year old larch wood salvaged from an old farmer's shed.

More beautiful pics after the jump.

I was taken in by this architectural model, it looks so real, but there is one under construction.


Justin says it is 14 meters long, 4 meters high and 3 meters wide, it will have a spacious living room with kitchenette and a bathroom on the lower level, a sleeping loft and a 'veranda'.
