Floating bedroom , what a neat idea! This former artist's studio , has been transformed to a clever home design. With an area of 50 squares meters, every space has been used up effectively. The main feature being the suspended bedroom, the heart of the entire place, like a floating island. Easily becomes the subject of curiosity and great conversation piece. The boxed bedroom is raised by half a meter from the second level, gently detaching it from the dining area in front.

Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. www.naturalswimmingpools.com The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters.
