Floating home – Utopia
The British company BMT Nigel Gee has created a building that will float on water and they think that the future of life is at the sea. Floating building project is called Utopia. It consists of 11 deck intended for the accommodation, it gives you a view of 360 degrees and landing place for four helicopters.
The project Utopia was unveiled in Monaco. It is not yet known how much money is needed to build it, and what kind of customers would be interested in purchasing.
Floating city is actually floating on four platforms. Each of them have mechanisms that keep it stable, even in extreme conditions at the sea. It is able to move at lower speeds, and its height is 65 meters. On the 13. floor is an observatory. Below are the accommodation facilities, shops, bars, pools and restaurants.
Design director James Roy said that visions of the future are often limited by the knowledge of the present and focus on the past. The project in Utopia is a facility where it is possible to live, and travel at the same time.
Through the middle of object passes a column that dives into the water and acts as an anchor. There is also a dock that allows access to the sea.
The design was developed in partnership of Island Yacht Design. This company is engaged in designing yachts, commercial ships and combat, and use technology that’s driving innovation in industry.
