Gorgeous Modular Floating House Lets You Live And Sail Around The World
By Yoon Sann Wong, 03 Nov 2015
Do you fancy living on the ocean and sailing around the world?
Friday—a team from the University of Coimbra in Portugal—has created a modular floating house called ‘Floatwing’ that can fit up to three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The structure measures six meters wide, with lengths ranging from 10 to 18 meters. Its modular design allows owners to pack up and fit all of the house components within two standard containers, to be shipped to any part of the world.
Equipped with two small outboard motors, the home can travel at a modest speed of three knots.
Friday described ‘Floatwing’ as “[a] romantic gateway for two, or a mobile house in the middle of a lake for the entire family or a group of friends, the possibilities are almost endless”.
