RCA smart mobility graduate wojciech morsztyn imagines ‘ocean neighborhood’, a series of inter-linked luxury houseboats as the solution to rising water level. linked by means of sidewalks, the drifting pods make for autonomous living, with the ability to store and filter water, channel airflow for cooling and harvest energy from the sun and wind.

‘ in the next 10 to 15 years, increasing water level could bring irreplaceable changes to our environment. ocean neighborhood creates mobile domestic naval systems and changes the ocean into a habitable space,’ says morsztyn‘ the creation of these brand-new structures will function as fully practical home gotten in touch with existing land infrastructure so that brand-new ocean neighborhoods end up being a natural extension of coastal cities.’
morsztyn envisions these structures producing little drifting and sailing modules situated 800 m from the coastlines, close enough for daily life on land. ocean neighborhood could also be used in the industrial market such as hotels, touristic areas and other environments.
each pod consists of two levels and features a breathtaking view of the sea. a mixture of wood and soft home furnishings in a neutral color combination matches the light-filled interior. morsztyn envisions his concept being executed by 2035 and says that with more investigation– and the time for the essential technology to reduce in rate– costings could be as low as ₤150,000 per system.
