If you're in the market for a sustainable home with a difference, this floating home will be just up your street.
Called Inachus, it takes its name from the Greek River God, and is part of Danish design think-tank Sanitov Floating Homes' on-going Future-Cities project, which looks to actively integrate the River Thames into the urban fabric of London, through sustainable living. The aim is to create a floating community of individually customised homes based on the original design of Inachus.
It is one of only 40 homes in the UK to carry Energy Level 5 status and will set to become one of the most sustainable homes in London. Among its many features, such as an internal green wall, the home will also use sunlight and heat created by those living to warm the house throughout the year; and any rainwater will be harvested for cleaning and to water the before mentioned green wall.
Offering a revolution in urban living, Inachus will be fully equipped with home appliances, consumer electronic products and mobile devices by Samsung UK.
Alexander Høst, Sanitov Studio, commented: "We are excited to be launching Inachus in partnership with Samsung and its cutting-edge technology and hope Londoners will embrace our holistic design approach which draws on this technology together with biology, cultural studies and philosophies to bring together this brand new concept."
