Arkup #1 is a luxury houseboat designed by a visionary company called Waterstudio and completed earlier this year. It’s this amazing two-storey house that just floats and is not even bothered by winds of up to 250 km/h. Not only is the house massive, but it’s also incredibly stable on the water thanks to the hydraulic stilts that make it impervious to waves and high winds. It offers 404 square meters of floor space and is 23 meters long.
As if the size and design alone weren’t impressive enough, this one-of-a-kind floating home packs tons of cool features like a 36kW solar panel array and a 1,000kWh battery capable of off-grid use. Other features include a rainwater collection and purification system and two engines.
Aesthetically, the house is super cool and modern, with huge windows framing the stunning views and a very clean and chic interior. The interior design is minimalist and contemporary with subtle nautical touches. The color palette is reduced to a few simple and neutral nuances, allowing the focus to be on the views. The light wood accents and all neutral colors blend perfectly with the rest of the decor.
