This amazing 'Schwimmhaus' sustainable houseboat created by German architects Confused-Direction was built using salvaged wood that the designers collected from an old farmhouse as well as other sustainable building materials.

This modern eco-friendly houseboat also boasts a green roof. Still under construction, the Schwimmhaus is being designed to either float or just stay on shore.

Founded by Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann, Confused-Direction specializes in interior, architectural and furniture design.

Implications - As environmentalism becomes a priority in societies, consumers are eager to adopt green habits into their lifestyles. Sustainable housing is becoming a tempting option for many, as it benefits the planet, the family and the finances. Companies involved in architecture should consider green alternatives to their typical designs to appeal to eco-friendly markets.
