Move on water, we learned long ago and today new era "of the relations" with the aquatic environment. It is likely that in the near future will become the norm – living on the water in a huge floating city. Already made first steps in this direction: around the world created many unusual concepts flooded and underwater hotels of different scales. Talented designers create all new projects floating hotels, complexes and entire cities on the water.

In case of cloudy days is provided by the presence of a powerful electric generators. Main load-bearing structures made of high-strength glass-reinforced - with this material you can create a hermetic objects of complex configuration. Streamlined shape blends perfectly with the water element.
Another concept almost ready to translate into reality – the hotel rooms-catamarans sailing on the scenic lake. Settled in the room, the tourist can choose which scenery outside the window will be pleasing to him today.

The surrounding underwater world is illuminated by powerful flood lights twenty – no coral reef, no fish will not go unnoticed in the rays of the bright lighting.
The Central part of the complex is a massive building with a transparent dome-shaped vault. In the future the complex will become the center uniting numerous private floating home.
The floating house Orsos
The floating house Orsos consists the function of luxury yacht and elite house.

The special equipment allows to filter the waste water and to convert seawater to drinking. The islanders don't have a problem being away from take care of in a reasonable amount of time. On cloudy days floating mansion receives energy from two powerful diesel engines.
The modern ark
Russian architects have developed a draft of this ark – a floating hotel that is able to stay afloat in a flood. The building is equipped with an Autonomous life support system, similar to a sea shell. Arched elements are parts of a prefabricated modular construction. On the surface of the ark are solar panels, providing the building with energy.
At the top there is a dome for collecting warm air is another alternative power generator. The inner space of the ark is covered with greenery – all kinds of plants are pleased with its fragrance all year round. Space ark have a free plan, so the structure can quickly adapt to any conditions.
The floating island Kokomo Ailand
Floating construction Kokomo Ailand is a cross between a yacht and a submarine. The island can move through water at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour.

Technology of installation of acrylic panels provides absolute tightness and safety. Acrylic glazing is a wonderful panoramic view, the opportunity to admire the stunning underwater landscapes, dive into the amazing atmosphere of the underwater world. The company "Planet of Neptune" is ready to implement projects of underwater glazing of any complexity.
