This amazing modern home uses a clever trick of perspective to make it appear as if it floats above the sea. The building was designed by Australia F2 Architecture and looks as if it is floating above the coast of Southern Australia.
The illusion that the house is suspended above the sea only works from the bridge used to enter it, which is absolutely fine for whoever it is that ends up staying here. The building is suspended on a 40m pole with a road that runs right along the coast just below the house.
Although it might not actually be floating out at sea, this is probably the closest you can safely live next to the ocean. The home can be rented for between AUD$440 and 1,220 a night and is aimed at couples. Pets and kids wouldn't be a good idea at this height!
