Architect Antony Gibbon has unveiled yet another incredible structure – this one designed for a future world where homes float on water. The circular Flux House features two rings of thin timber panels, equally spaced around the frame in order to illuminate the interior with a soft diffusion of natural light. Four walkways provide access to the home, which has a large swimming pool at its center.

The main house is designed to sit upon a large body of water, creating the effect of being surrounded by a modern-day moat. The timber slats in the facade not only let in natural light, but allow for light to reflect off the water and into the structure.

The interior maintains the home’s circular shape, with the living and dining areas on one side and the bedrooms on the other. The swimming pool, accessible from any room, serves as the focal point of the building.

The Flux House design is conceptual at the moment, but, like most of Antony Gibbon’s designs, it could very well be used as a private home or off-grid resort.
