FLOAT
HOUSE

Floating House,

Porto Alegre, Brazil

CONCEPT

The motivation for the project arose from the desire to live in contact with water, but in the city of Porto Alegre, which historically does not have a good relationship with the banks of Guaíba. An alternative could be a boat or motorboat adapted to be a dwelling anchored in a marina, the other could be to design a floating house for this purpose, defining itself by the second. From there, a floating prefabricated module, designed to occupy a standard berth in the marina, would have to be transported to reach the location. The width of the wave is 4m, but the limit width of a truck is 3m, with this, a 3x4m module was proposed, which could be connected with other modules, as needed.
