BMT Asia Pacific, the firm behind the Project Utopia floating island, has developed a new concept for a luxury floating villa envisioned for calm waters near the coast. Boasting an underwater bedroom that would literally let you sleep with the fishes, SeaScape can also be expanded with attachable pontoons to increase available floorspace.
SeaScape currently exists only in renders, and BMT Asia Pacific hasn’t revealed some of the finer points of the design (perhaps because they don’t exist yet).
That said, the concept high-end villa sits upon a triangular floating pontoon measuring 700 sq ft (65 sq m). This is expandable to 1,800 sq ft (167 sq m) using additional pontoon modules. It’s not clear exactly how the homes attach to the extra pontoons, but the firm implies it would be a simple process.
The villas would be prefabricated and transportable within a standard shipping container when disassembled. Marine-grade aluminum and fiberglass are slated for use as building materials.
