According to the French naval architect Michel Ducancel, the Anthénea floating house was inspired by one of the James Bond films, The Spy Who Loved Me.
Like its predecessor, UFO 2.0, Anthénea was originally conceived as a hotel or spa, but it can be converted into a houseboat at any time. The area of the presented model is 50 sq.m. You can get inside the house through a hatch door. On the ground floor there is a living room with a sofa, minibar and a window overlooking the sea.
On the other side of the house there is a living area with a round bed and a bathroom. The second floor, where a staircase leads, is reserved for a recreation area for 10 people, at whose services there is a round sofa.
So far, nothing is known about the sound and thermal insulation of Anthénea, but according to its creator, the glass of the house can withstand temperature drops from -30 to + 40 ° C.
The life support system is represented by solar panels, a desalination plant, a wood stove and a generator for backup power. If Anthénea is used as a hotel, it will be towed to a certain place, and if it is used as a residential building, it will be additionally equipped with electric motors, with which it will be able to move at a speed of about 10 km / h.
Anthénea is currently located in Brittany, France, where it can be purchased for $ 535, 000.
