While a floating home symbolizes luxury for a few, but for others, it might be a necessity. The SchwimmHausBoot floating house is a creation of Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann of design firm Confused-Direction. This eco-friendly floating home, with zero emissions, represents a balanced mix of design and maritime romance. It has been designed for the areas with big water surfaces or in cities where property costs are high house boats offer an alternative. The SchwimmHausBoot floating home has a green roof and materials used in the making include 250 year old larch salvaged wood. The floting home features a spacious living room with kitchen and a bathroom on the lower level, a sleeping loft and a veranda for enjoying the scenic beauty. Confused-Direction was found by designer Flo FLorian, in collaboration with designer and carpenter Sascha Akkermann.
