House on the Waterfront0

This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen:

What you’re looking at is the Trilobis 65 Floating Home.

Designed by Italian Naval Architect Giancarlo Zema, the Trilobis 65 has living area for six people spread throughout four levels, all connected by a spiral staircase.

Created to allow people a unique living experience in a self sufficient, environmentally friendly living space, the top level of this unique house has is 3.5 meters above sea level and contains all the piloting controls, navigation, and communications equipment.

The second level rests 1.4 meters above sea level and is designated the “day area.”  It contains seating areas, a kitchen, and a formal dining area.

The next level is the “night area’, with two single and two double bedrooms.  It is semi-submerged at 0.8 meters above sea level.

The final level is (to me) the selling point of this home: the underwater observation bulb.  Resting 3 meters below the water, it provides an unobstructed 360° view of the undersea environment.

The modular design of the Trilobis 65 allows for several of the homes to be connected into a large floating island community.

I want one.  I’m not even gonna attempt to hide this fact.
