For what makes the Seapod special isn’t just its unique, sci-fi-esque exterior and, well, the fact that it’s three storeys of floating concrete, steel and fibreglass. It is the house’s buoyant air-filled steel tubes hidden beneath the waves suspending the main living space of the floating home three-metres above the crashing waves.
This buoyancy, the company claims, is what results in “superior comfort and stability” for residents occupying the 830 sqft space. This includes a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge area and storage space.
To take advantage of living on the ocean, Seapod’s floating homes also offer panoramic views through numerous floor-to-ceiling windows. Alternatively, you could simply dive off your front porch – one of the perks of aquatic living.
Naturally, there’s enough water and electricity storage to make off-grid living convenient. The eco-conscious company is also investing in cutting-edge tech to deal with waste recycling and energy production.
You can add on these upgrades progressively onto the pods, whether physical or digital.
The floating homes are specifically designed to be remotely upgradable (though obviously, physical changes would require a visit). This means that new modules can be added and removed depending on what you’d like.
