A floating home like no other
Specialists in floating construction Bluet Ltd and Marinetek Group, have collaborated to create a spectacular floating villa located in Marinstaden, Sweden. Comprising three floors, the so called ‘Villa W’ embraces a classic modernist design that maintains a strong connection with its natural surroundings. The external façade combines glass, white fibre cement and sustainable Kebony wood to create a property fitting of the surrounding scenery. Although compact, this villa has enough space for a family of four, with a guest bedroom and living room at sea level, additional bedrooms and a TV room on the first floor and sauna and sauna lounge on the roof.
Timo Urala, Lead Designer commented: “It’s always exciting to work on a challenging project with spatial and weight constraints. To create a house that floats, is well laid out and beautiful relies on top quality materials throughout. Kebony was great to work with: strong and durable, and since working on this project I’m now adding a small extension to my home with a Kebony roof terrace.”
