Hovering Spheres

Postby Sabina » Mon Feb 01, 2010 6:56 pm

Hovering eco-houses that nicely blend in with nature, and they are round! This is quite charming.. reminds a bit of the Ewok settlement in Star Wars. I would love to try out one of these.

Here are some photos...

Do you eventually have some photo how they look inside?
From the outside it looks very nice and unusual, but I am not able to imagine the size until seeing the inside of the house.
But, just an idea to live a Tarzan model is really cool.

It's kind of like being on a sailing ship, so not very spacious but cute.
I have included the web address of the makers' website for more information. It's right underneath the photos.

And if you have a plot of land but no trees here is a similar solution although it seems [url=http://www.dansmonarbre.com/Le_village_aerien/le_village_aerien.php]it is still in the concept stages[/url]...
