Boat House / Building

Boat House
Boat House

To resolve the rise of sea-level issue, we combine the housing with the concept of the floating ship cabin. The houses are not necessarily built on the sea. Instead, we simply design buildings with the concept in future urban development.
The building is able to be separated from the land due to the claw-shaped structure when the sea level is above to the land. The bottom of the building, which is actually like a ship cabin, makes the whole building float on the sea, and prevents the future ecosystem from drastic change.
