The prevalence of flooding in many geographical locations has many homeowners seeking out ways to prevent water damage, which is what this house design does in an innovative way.

Named the 'Greenhouse That Grows Legs,' the house is the work of the BAT Studio for Middlesex, United Kingdom residents Erica and Peter. The couple decided to take action after they went through their fifth ordeal with flooding from the River Thames.

Although not designed to be an actual dwelling, the 'Greenhouse That Grows Legs' is designed to offer the couple a safe haven for their belongings. When a flood warning is issued, the couple can pack their items into the building, which can be raised or lowered via remote control.
