At first sight it looks like a giant floating egg but, in reality, it has all the requisites for being 'home'. It's called WaterNest 100 and it is the first floating, recyclable and completely self-sufficient house designed by the Roman architect Giancarlo Zema for EcoFloLife company.

The eco-friendly structure is made (both internally and externally) of laminated wood and aluminum, recycled and recyclable materials that make the housing unit reusable for 98%. The house is also equipped with photovoltaic panels placed along the surface of the roof to support the unit's entire energy requirement and it has a sophisticated system of micro internal ventilation, in which the air conditioning joins with natural ventilation ensuring a low consumption.

Inside there are living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom but, according to the needs, it can take different configurations and become a bar, restaurant, shop or office. WaterNest 100 is temporary in London and it is the future housing model for those who want to live in harmony with nature.
