A New Concept – UFO Floating House

ufo-5With the sea level rising as a result of global warming, the low-lying, peolple found an alteternative for the conventional houses on the ground. The floating house is not a new concept, but some architects took it at a new level – The UFO Floating House. While you can always head for the hills to wait out the apocalypse, a more stylish option could be a fully sustainable floating home from Italian mini yacht-maker Jet Capsule. The company has drawn up a concept for a saucer-shaped UFO, or Unidentified Floating Object, which offers a completely off-grid existence floating on the ocean.ufo-6

The  company’s co-founders, Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla, the UFO is intended for “living in a floating house and moving slowly around the world.” “Slowly” in this case means a leisurely maximum speed of 3.5 knots (6.5 km/h, 4 mph), using a waterjet-propelled Torqeedo Deep Blue 1800 electric motor.ufo-10

This motor is connected to a battery that draws energy generated from 40 sq. m (430 sq. ft.) of solar panels in a closable lid atop the structure. So, it id also Eco-Friendly.ufo-1

If you want to move the house think twice before you chose a conventional house. If you love traveling and you are not seasick a floating house can be the best idea for you!ufo-2BeFunky Collage

How To Create Your Dream Veranda

We don’t see everyday houses with balconies big enough to allow more than a chair, and maybe that’s why are less design ideas for balconies or verandas.

Here are some ideas of how you can decorate your balcony/veranda.

1.Take attention to the floor

2. Climb plants on the walls;

3.Make yourself a cozy place by bringing your inside chairs, pillows and blankets outside;

4.Create contrast to make it look bigger than it is;

I will show you some photos to see how these ideas would look.

Speaking about the nature in the previous article and how to live surrounded by it, I came back with another post related to nature and about living in its vicinity .This builiding I am gonna show you is made by some talented architects.

We all know how important the forest is for our health , because it gives us oxygen. And what we want most for our children ? Health ! The Tezuka architects have built a kindergarden surrounded by woods, nature in Fuji . Thus, children can be close to the nature , play without being put in danger in any way. The building was constructed so as to provide the necessary safety and be open to nature .

Does the nature defeat against nature?
