The Floating House was designed by the architect Dymitr Malcew and it is a mobile structure that can be moved to different locations or docked at a marina or pier.

The designer began the project from the idea of creating a structure that would impact its surroundings as little as possible while also providing a unique experience for the inhabitants. The project was designed for the developer H2orizon who is a specialist in floating structures and due to its unique setting it allows a maximum visual connection with the landscape.

All the interior rooms have access to the terrace that surrounds the perimeter and the outside can always be seen through the glazed surfaces. The base of the structure is a buoyant platform and the roof is supported by a system of columns that is separated from the glass wall. The designers chose this solution in order to permit the micro-movements of the uneven water surface while also allowing even more natural light inside.
