The Loch Eight House looks as if it defies gravity and hovers right above glass-like waters. It messes even more with your mind by the fact that this architectural illusion sits on heavy stone walls with floor-to-ceiling glazing in between – and yet the structure has a sense of weightlessness.
“Inspired by traditional floating homes and villages, loch eight takes elements of these, interpreting them into a minimalistic, contemporary design.” – Antony Gibbon
Floating architecture in one with nature
The Loch Eight house is designed with private spaces but the main concept idea is to be in one with nature using sustainable materials wherever possible. The man behind is Mexico-based designer Antony Gibbon. He’s become recognized world-wide as an architectural designer who sees the environment as an important driving force behind every project.
