Arkup No. 1 Floating House

Multiple years in the making, Arkup's inaugural mobile overwater home is finished. Designed by Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, it combines elements of a houseboat, yacht, and oil rig to provide 4,350 square feet of above-water living space. Its unique hydraulic self-elevating system can go down 20 feet to lift it above the waves, keep you safe in a storm — it's designed to withstand a Category 4 hurricane — and transform the moving vessel into a stationary home. It also has a solar panel array on the roof, a 1,000 kWh battery pack to store energy for nighttime use, a rainwater collection system, and a pair of 100 kW thrusters to move it about at speeds up to seven knots.
