This concept for a cantilevered house on water is from architects Jedrzej Lewandowski and Lukasz Skirzynski. After researching yacht architecture, the pair came up with the idea for a self-sufficient 2 family home that includes an integrated floating dock (rises and falls with tide levels), desalination water treatment, and tidal and solar energy generators...
formodesign used Corian for the exterior of the unique building — the core foundation is made from combination of concrete and steel and utilizes a sea bed pile system.
In addition to energy generation through solar and tidal generators, the design for the self sufficient homes include systems for water recycling, and computer-aided shading systems.
