If you’ve ever watched Finding Nemo or The Little Mermaid and thought, “wow, I hope that one day I too can live underwater”, we have some good news.
Property developer Kleindienst Group has revealed plans for a new type of residence that makes the dream of living under the sea a reality.
The aptly named ‘Floating Seahorse’ villas were unveiled at The Dubai International Boat Show (where else?) earlier this year. Part executive bachelor bad, part boat, the bottom level of these three-storey architectural marvels will be completely submerged, exposing the owner to all the wonders of the kaleidoscopic marine world around them.
According to the brochure,“the master bedroom and bathroom will be totally submerged underwater and will command breathtaking views of the surrounding coral reef and marine life. The sea level accommodation will boast floor to ceiling windows, uninterrupted sea views, a fully-fitted kitchen with a dining area, an open plan living area and a sun deck.”
The villas will be situated off the coast of Dubai near the man-made island of ‘Europe’ and will set you back a lazy $US2.3 million.
But the good news is that the concept can be replicated anywhere.
So who knows, in a few years we may all be living in partly submerged villas. We’re just not sure what would happen if there was a storm.
