This Amazing Floating House Is One Of The Craziest Projects Ever
What you see here is one of the craziest and most ambitious projects to ever be completed. This is Arkup #1, a luxury houseboat that was created by a visionary company called Waterstudio and completed earlier this year. It’s this amazing two-story home that just floats and remains unbothered not even by winds of up to 155 mph. The house is also pretty massive in addition to being incredibly stable on the water. It offers 4,350 square feet (404 square meters) of floor space and it’s 75 ft( 23m) long.
As if the size and design alone weren’t impressive enough, this one-of-a-kind floating house is equipped with tons of cool features such as a 36 kW solar panel array and a 1,000 kWh battery that can power it off-the-grid. Other included features are a rainwater collection and purification system and a pair of engines.
The house also has stabilizing hydraulic stilts which are probably its most noteworthy design feature. From an aesthetic perspective the house is super cool and modern, featuring huge windows that frame the amazing views and a very clean and chic interior decor. Of course, all of that comes at a price which in this case is a whopping US$5.5 million.
