As we know, Holland is a country whose 27% of the area and ,amazingly enough, about 60% of the population lives below the sea level. Truly speaking, water is something which brought wealth to this country but at the same time it is a threat to the population since they face difficulties of flooding. Now, they have a good solution to their problem — floating apartments. Yes, WaterStudio is planning to built floating apartments in Holland.

The interesting fact is that these apartments will be 25% more energy efficient as compared to traditional apartments as they will be using surrounding water as a coolant. Interesting! right? We can hope they will be able to solve the problem of ever-rising tides, ideas save this world!

Here are a few snaps of what we can expect out of this seemingly crazy idea!
