The Trilobis 65 Floating Home
Trilobis 65 is a semi-submerged dwelling environment. Reaching 20 metres in length designed by Giancarlo Zema for habitation by six people at sea. It is ideal for living in bays, atolls and maritime parks. The main aim of the project is to allow anyone to live in a unique environment through a self sufficient, non-polluting dwelling cell in unison with their ocean surroundings. Trilobis 65 has been designed on four separate levels connected by a spiraling staircase. The top level is 3.5 metres above sea level. The next level is at 1.4 metres above sea level and hosts the daylight zone with all services and allowing outdoor access. The third level is situated at 0.8 metre below sea level, semi-submerged, and is devoted to the night-time zone. At 3.0 metres below sea level, totally submerged, there is the underwater observation bulb, an intimate and mediative place. The shape of Trilobis 65 allows the annular aggregation of more modular units, creating island colonies. This special project refers to the Trilobiti, little creatures that lived in the sea 500 milion years ago.
