The Port X features a flexible design that can be extended or reduced to provide the perfect amount of space for its owners. The home’s curvilinear C-shaped sections are made up of wood and laminate, and they can be easily attached together to create larger spaces. The residential shells rest on pontoons that contain all of the home’s technical inner workings.

The interior of the Port X features timber plank floors that extend along the curved walls up to the ceiling. The back of the Port X faces the land, providing privacy, and the home is accessible via a curved footbridge. The front of the home faces faces the water, and a wall of glass curtains provide continuous views and ample natural lighting.

Each customizable modular unit can be expanded if more space is needed, and the home can operate completely off the grid with solar panels or wind turbines. Port X is currently in the prototype phase, but it’s planned for commercial production later this year.
