• Floating Lausitz Geierswald Resort uses solar panels and hydrothermal climate control

  • floathome-1.jpgWith landspaces slowly diminishing, one of the smartest things mankind can do to solve its ever explosive population problem is living on water surfaces instead. The Lausitz Geierswald Resort located at the Lusatian Lake District in Germany follows this very principal and sports floating residences designed by architectural firm Steeltec37. Sustainable and luxurious, these living spaces are made from a light-weight metal frame base-structure atop an unsinkable pontoon. Using large window panels layered with photovoltaic film and hydrothermal heating and cooling systems, these residences also use natural lighting to the fullest with help from automated roof-lighting control systems. Costing $120 per night off-season and $225 a night during summer, this is indeed the perfect way to vacation green.
