UK’s Debut Amphibious House Rises To Awards

LDA Awards presentation medley The UK’s first Amphibious House has been making waves since being featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs show. This unique, Baca-designed home has attracted widespread attention and has already been won a Gold Award in the 2014 London Design Awards.

An amphibious house is one that rests on the ground on fixed foundations but rises up within its dock to be buoyed by the water in the event of a flood. The float test will be performed soon and with the coming flood season approaching, many eyes will be watching to see if the Amphibious House’s special capabilities will be needed so soon.
