A buoyant house was built near the River Thames, in the United Kingdom. With some of the most iconic contemporary home design elements, this house reunites the scenic views with one of the world’s first problems: the environment.
The UK’s “first amphibious house” by Baca Architects, rises in its dock-like foundations to avoid flood water. Baca Architects founders Richard Coutts and Robert Barker designed Formosa for an island in the middle of the River Thames in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
The house is composed of a utility room, study, dining room and cinema room with the entertaining spaces and bedrooms arranged over a further two upper floors creating a luxury dwelling on a cinematic place.
To provide an early warning of flooding, the whole house was built to let the owners of this contemporary house plans to be warned if there is a threat to their safety.
The modern house design is covered in zinc shingles and has a glazed gable that overlooks a small garden design, which slopes up from the edge of the river and is designed to provide an early warning of flooding.

Inner City Warehouse is located in Sydney, Australia. The previous warehouse was turned into a wonderful retreat with some hidden spaces for you to have some personal time without feeling out of place. The architectural firm Allen Jack+Cottier was responsible for this modern home design.
In the Surry Hills Warehouse, this modern house design was built in a carbon-fibre pod that was positioned on the warehouse’s upper floor. In this two-story house, there’s plenty of colour around and the mixture between open living while having a small retreat within works wonders.
Once a food manufacturer now a private residence. Along with an indoor pool, music room, living room, four bedrooms and a terrace, the really special aspect is a hidden pod inside. Creating privacy and relaxation, this sleeping pod is in the middle of the upper floor. With a futuristic intake, the creators say “As the warehouse’s central feature, the pod organises and informs the spaces around it, while providing a private cocoon for rest and privacy.”
This modern interior design is filled with colour, mixing furniture and styles. The kitchen presents an industrial interior design with the wood panelling and metallic touches while the bedroom is a space filled with natural light and rustic touches.
The terrace is destined to be a relaxing space, full of natural light, plants and indoor place to feel cosy is completed with the big window that gives room to the living room.
