Torrisi & Procopio Architetti presents Iride 01_Floating Suite at the World Architecture Festival 2015 in Sinagapore. The project, the only Italian finalist this year, has been included in the category Future Projects, Leisure Led Developments.


The IRIDE 01 Floating Suite was designed to accommodate a comfortable bedroom with bathroom in 25 square metres. It is suitable for protected bays, tourist ports, marine parks, lakes and it was designed as an annex for lakeside or riverside hotels to offer their guests a unique experience, as an alternative to the traditional accommodation.


The aim of offering a holiday with high standards of comfort in close contact with nature determined the choice of the design, shape and structure and also the materials and technological systems to be used.


Outdoor spaces and wide windows allow for contact with the environment outside, making it possible to appreciate the landscape to the full.


During the day the relationship between inside and outside may be adjusted to pleasure by means of special electronic window opacifiers.


The wooden modular structure on a floating pontoon of about 40 square metres, allows the length to be flexible, making it easy to assemble and disassemble, and at the same time limiting costs.


The pontoon consists of some discontinuous floating units in reinforced concrete with an expanded polystyrene core and it is anchored to the seabed by ground anchors and flexible ropes, the most environmentally-friendly system available as the impact on the seabed is minimal. The deck finishing is in exotic hardwood and composite materials.


The IRIDE 01 Floating Suite, designed for the French company H2orizon, can be purchased singly but it is also the ideal solution for a floating village, where some units can be grouped together and connected to the main building by floating walkways.
