Amsterdam – It may soon be possible to escape to an island made of recycled waste.
Michel Kreuger and Kizito Musampa, the founders of Studio Noach, have developed Green Floating, a new concept for living on water.
The island, made of recycled polystyrene, is an energy-efficient construction that would use the surrounding water for cooling purposes. The hills and valleys created by its vegetated walls and roofs would provide a breeding ground for birds, butterflies and insects. The floating village’s design centres around a spa.
