This modern-meets-space-age home in Athens, Greece was created by 314 Architecture Studio. The owner, who is a lover of all things aquatic, was looking for a house that hovered over the water like a sailboat but was as sleek as a yacht.

The home, which is about 1000m2, is located on a plot of land of 7000m2. The architects explain that “the bioclimatic design of the residence, the cooling feeling of the house through the contact of water and the use of sun and the geothermic energy are consistent in developing a highly dynamic and modern but also eco friendly design.”
