This Floating Home Is Solar-Powered To Keep Mother Nature In Mind
Everyone knows it can be hard to find a home that is both stylish and environmentally sustainable.
Thanks to Italian architect Giancarlo Zema, finding an eco-friendly waterfront house just got a whole lot easier.
Behold, the WaterNest 100.
When it comes to scoring some insane views, you can't get any better than this. The WaterNest 100 is actually a solar-powered home that floats on the lake or river of your choosing.
Created for the UK-based company EcoFloLife, this awesome residence merges modern amenities with green technology and is constructed almost entirely out of recycled supplies, including water-resistant aluminium and glued laminated timber.
The roof of the home features "amorphous photovoltaic panels" that can produce enough energy to power the appliances inside. This dome-shaped dwelling is also considered as "low consumption," due to its "internal natural micro-ventilation" and air conditioning.
These floating homes are made to order and tend to be a bit on the pricey side, starting around $527,000. But, that's just a small price to pay for the coolest waterfront pad in the pond.
