Dubai is known for its lavishness, sure, but it looks like some of the architects in this famous city are looking to reinvent the very meaning of luxury by creating homes that look like they came straight out of a science fiction novel. The concept of floating homes is not exactly a new one, but it’s definitely impressive to see one of these amazing residences up close. A company named Kleindienst Group has spent 5,000 hours of research as well as 13,000 hours in order to design and build this impressive floating home.
The abode is a part of the Floating Seahorse project, which is located in Dubai’s Heart of Europe island chain. It costs $2.8 million, and it will be accompanied by another 41 houses by October 2016, while the entire project will comprise 131 of these masterpieces in its final form. Main highlights include a stunning living room, a minibar, a Jacuzzi, a kitchen and a shower area at the upper floor, while the lower underwater volume comprises a bathroom and a bedroom complemented by a 500-square-foot coral garden just outside the window. This coral garden acts as a home for lovely seahorses, and the project’s creators hope that they will be able to restore the endangered species in this area of Dubai.
