Amphibious House Airs on Grand Designs

TWEETS

October saw the anticipated debut of the UK’s first Amphibious House, designed by Baca, on C4’s Grand Designs show.  The family home on the banks of the River Thames, that rises in its dock to float in the event of a flood, is a major breakthrough for British architects and engineers who have been searching for a solution to mitigate flood-risk.

 

Highlights of the show included the successful passing of the float test and the site under water during last winter’s terrible national flooding.  With this winter approaching and the potential for the first flood on the site of the newly-built house, it may not be long before the Amphibious House rises to the occasion.
