Continuing its imaginative approach to architecture, Dubai is expected to have a series of projects completed by the end of the year. floating villas that will offer their owners a unique experience in the world.
Baptized as 'Floating Seahorse', the houses are (according to the promoter Kleindienst) a hybrid between chalet and boat without propulsion weighing approximately 180 tons. The chosen place? The waters that surround El Mundo, a set of 300 artificial islands that, from the air, form the world map.
The houseboats will consist of three floors. The upper two will offer jaccuzi, space for al fresco dining and sunbathing, and a fully equipped kitchen, among other amenities, although the most impressive space is the one below sea level. Imagine what it must be like to take a nap in a underwater master bedroom surrounded by glass walls, from where you can see corals, fish and sea turtles.
Despite the fact that the homes will float, it is expected that they will remain in the same place aided by portable water tanks that will be emptied and refilled by the management of the marina. Power will be provided by neighboring islands through piers.
If you get the idea of buying your own island in the Persian Gulf to spend your vacations, you will be interested to know that the 'Floating Seahorse' properties are already for sale, with the price of each individual property being 1.25 million pounds.
