- HOUSE FLOATS ON WATER, LETS YOU BE BASED ANYWHERE YOU LIKE ~
Dymitr Malcew’s mobile floating home concept, which comes with a buoyant platform that props up an entire home with rooms that directly go out to the terrace to the edge of the water, also has plenty of glass walls that let natural light stream into the space. It’s clearly designed for greatness.

The interior of a shipping container is compact, but it can be surprisingly comfortable, as this Amsterdam student dorm attests. When their service at sea is finished, a growing number of steel containers are cleaned and refurbished with flooring, insulation, air conditioning, electricity, plumbing, and other modern conveniences.
The result is creative green housing that requires only a fraction of new construction’s energy and materials and costs less as well. In Amsterdam, students have happily taken to dwelling in these unconventional new digs built by Tempohousing.
