Float On In This Recycled Solar-Powered Home

Waternest100

Between Earth Ships, the Small House Movement, and others, there’s a huge desire for off-the-grid alternatives to typical housing options.

London’s EcoFloLife have been working on these alternatives for years, and, in partnership with Italian architect Giancarlo Zema, have annouced plans for a new kind of energy-efficient home.

The Waternest 100 will be a literal floating haven of green energy. Made from reycled timber and salvaged aluminum, it is 98% recyclable. A 60m2 solar panel array on the roof will generate 4 kwp.

The interior will be offered in a variety of configurations, which, according to DesignBoom, can include space for an office, lounge bar, restaurant, retail shop or exhibition area.

Thanks to the company’s innovative technologies, the Waternest 100 can be positioned on any stretch of calm water – rivers, lakes, bays, even particularly quiet stretches of sea.
