Amphibious House shortlisted for Structural Award

11049-022-Complete-FM-845Web

This extraordinary new house is designed like a pontoon in a marina and can float on the rising flood waters, settling back into place when the flood waters recede.

Judge’s comment:

“By designing a house capable of rising by up to 2.5m on rising flood water whilst remaining fully functional the Structural Engineer has demonstrated how our profession can contribute to mitigation of one of the world’s greatest natural hazards. By sustaining the house through the flood and returning it as the flood subsides all need for demolition and replacement is removed.”
