    Gear  /  Design
    This floating, solar-powered home, called "waternest 100", designed by renowned Italian architect Giancarlo Zema. The 1,000 square foot Waternest 100 is made from recycled timber and a recycled aluminum hull. The design includes skylights, balconies, and large windows that offer sweeping views of the natural surroundings. The roof is essentially a giant solar panel, and best of all, the home can be set to float atop any calm body of water.
    "the 100m2 dwelling is 12m in diameter and 4m high, made entirely of recycled laminated-timber and a salvaged aluminum hull. balconies are located on sides and thanks to large windows, permit nearly panoramic views of the surroundings. bathroom and kitchen skylights flood the space with sunshine, and 60m2 solar panels capable of generating 4kwp takes care of the rest. the interior of ‘waternest 100′ includes living and dining rooms, sleeping quarters, kitchen, and lavatory. other configurations can be adapted to different needs including but not limited to: an office, lounge bar, restaurant, retail shop, or exhibition area."
