We have seen floating schools and some recreational facilities that can carry out their functionality on water so it shouldn’t be surprising that an actual floating home would follow.
And Waterstudio seems to be taking the lead, announcing that the world’s first floating apartment complex will commence construction next year, 2014.
It will be made up of 60 luxury apartments made of 180 modular units. It will be topped by a green roof and arranged around a courtyard, providing an interesting new dwelling place.
With the Netherlands having its share of issues stemming from its below sea level location, the floating apartment complex does indeed make sense.
The Citadel apartments will be one of six projects comprising the New Water development, which is located in one of these polders. After completion, the land will be flooded to allow the Citadel to float atop the water.
