Coral Reef House

Dubai has built the first The Floating Seahorse, a floating house with an underwater bedroom

Share

Four kilometres off the coast of Dubai, the first home on the water, The Floating Seahorse, has been completed . Each villa of The Floating Seahorse has three levels - underwater, at sea level and above sea level. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the lower, underwater level, so you can go to sleep and watch the fishes scurrying about in the coral reefs through 3.5-inch-thick acrylic windows. The $2.8 million house has everything you need to live and more - for example, a Jacuzzi with a glass bottom. The walls of the 240-ton building are finished with Myanmar teak. By the end of the year, a total of 42 such houses will have been built.
