Based on there’s less and less space for people to live, this architecture is designed for future 20 or 30 years later. A self-sufficiency house will float on the ocean, and it can generate power by the sea.
To prevent from influenced by the wave, facilities inside were combined together. And there’s a little garden you can plant some vegetable. Integral function makes you feel comfortable live in the ocean.
