Modern Floating Home is the Perfect Tranquil Retreat


Floating House is a home designed by architect Dymitr Malcew that offers its residents beautiful unobstructed views, a connectedness to their surroundings, and an easy way to move from one locale to another. Created for H2ORIZON, a French developer that specializes in floating structures like this one, the stunning construct is built on top of a buoyant platform that comes equipped with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and fully roofed terrace.

Though the architectural structures are typically equipped with similar amenities, the floor plans can be changed to suit any individual’s preferences. Malcew wanted to create a home that barely impacted its environment while also allowing for scenic views that arise naturally but do not visually hinder the breathtaking view of the home’s surrounding landscape.
