The WaterNest 100 is a 100m2 residential unit, 12m in diameter and 4m high, ideal for those wishing to live independently, exclusively and at one with nature. 

It features balconies conveniently located on the sides with large windows offering a stunning view across the water. Bathroom and kitchen skylights are located on the wooden rooftop as well as 60sqm of amorphous photovoltaic panels that generate 4kWp used for the internal need of the unit.

The interior can include a living room, dining area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom or can have other configurations depending on the individual requirements. The selected furnishings in the EcoFloLife catalogue are top design, eco-friendly and elegant.

The floating house can be positioned on a river, lake, bays, atolls and sea areas with calm waters. The use of materials and the sustainable production system makes this house recyclable up to as much as 98 percent. Also, due to its system of internal natural mirco-ventilation and air conditioning, it is classified as a low-consumption residential habitat.
