Floating House Giancarlo Zema, Qatar

From series “Fancy Houses and Hotels Located on Water or Under Water”
The author of the project of a floating house, which consists 98% of the secondary raw materials, is a world-famous architect and designer Giancarlo Dzema. Built on his project, the house promises to be absolutely safe for the environment. If necessary, 98% of the building material can be recycled. According to the idea, similar houses on water can provide housing for thousands of people in the event of an increase in the world ocean level.

It is likely that very soon there will not be enough land for all people on the ground. The futuristic houses on water will be an alternative to them, which, in terms of comfort, will not be inferior to ordinary ones. The area of the house, which in its form really resembles a nest, is 100 square meters. Among the distinctive features of its construction is a roof area of 60 square meters, which is almost entirely occupied by solar panels.

As the developers of the project note, unique houseboats do not have to be used as living quarters. They can be an excellent alternative to classical offices or serve as a location of a small store. Each of the original houseboats will have an incredibly attractive design. The interior decoration will be made entirely of natural wood. It is possible that in the near future, one of the major construction companies will begin to create the first house designed by Giancarlo Dzema, whose bold idea seems to be relevant to many specialists.
