If you’ve seen my other articles concerning unique water-based home environments (such as the Trilobis 65 and the Neptus 60), you’ll know that Giancarlo Zema thinks outside of the box when it comes to home design.
The Jellyfish 45 Habitat is no exception:
Built primarily of high-density fiberglass (with decks of solid teak), this floating home can house up to six people. Consisting of five levels, the Jellyfish is designed for its inhabitants to live both above and below sea level – all connected by one spiral staircase.
The top level work/ study area rests at 5.6 meters above seal level. One level below (at 3.5 meters) is the sleeping area, and the next lower level (at 1.4 meters) is the living area with a kitchen and bathrooms. Below this is a guest bedroom, complete with bathroom, as well as areas designated for technical components of the house.
But, as with most of these types of houses designed by Zema, the greatest attraction is the underwater observation dome.
Made of acrylic, this area allows seating for several people and provides an unobstructed view of the underwater habitat surrounding the home.
While many homes of this type run upwards of $50 million, the Jellyfish is a mere $2.5 million. While that’s no small sum for most of us, it could be totally in range for a lottery winner!
