Does modern city-life rush you away from your own thoughts? If you too have been searching for a way to live in harmony with nature, independent from the city, than we have just the thing. More like, just the Solar Powered Floating Eco Home. With no worries for foundation, trees to remove, a concrete driveway to pour, or even land to buy, the WaterNest 100 is the perfect answer to living completely independent. The pod is a floating unit that can be placed on lakes or bays, along river courses or calm waters sea areas. The stylish eco-friendly home has been designed by Italian architect Giancarlo Zema. The 100 sqm is 98% recyclable. The materials are almost all recycled glued laminated timber and recycled aluminum hull. The 4 m high structure has superb large windows so you can enjoy the beautiful views from outside. The off-grid aspect is offered by amorphous photo-voltaic panels stretched on 60 sqm of roof. The WaterNest 100 is also a low-consumption structure, with natural micro-ventilation and air conditioning fitted on the inside. You can make the interior customized to your needs. The WaterNest can be a perfect eco house, office, and even a bar or restaurant.




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.
