WELCOME TO THE GREEN HOME OF THE FUTURE

Imagine living in a futuristic home that doesn’t disturb the natural environment. Our GreenPod is evolving the way we create homes so that you can live harmoniously in the future. Our design has a low-impact footprint with benefits for both us and earth. This is our vision of the paradise this world could be. You are welcome to join us.

We are currently building Green Pods at our factory in Linton Bay in Panama.

When you build a home on land you normally clear cut the trees and replace them with pavement, concrete and bricks. Building a house on land is an environmentally destructive process.

GreenPods are designed to co-exist with nature. They are like futuristic treehouses.

UPGRADE YOUR LIFESTYLE

SeaPods are under continuous development by a decentralized global team that is working on designing upgrades to make Pod life consistently better over time. We have designed Pods to be easily upgradable. There are set locations behind walls where new devices and components can be plugged in like lego pieces for upgraded functionality as technology improves.

The native Pod software can be upgraded remotely and new sensors and automations can be easily hot swapped. The Pod will be like a mobile phone where you can install new “home apps” that are constantly being developed.

We have many exciting upgrades under development which will be released as they become available. And no, you will not need to buy a new home every year to get an upgrade.

Check out our open source library of projects to get a glimpse of what is coming or signup to help make some of these projects a reality.

INNER FLOW

Designing a home on the water gave us a chance to rethink every aspect of a home. We wanted the interior walls of a floating home to mimic the natural flow of water and curve seamlessly from one room to another just like water flows and curves.

INVISIBLE BEAUTY

We think the home of the future will be elegant, simple, and clean. To achieve this we decided to hide the lightbulbs, light switches, and power outlets by building them into the design of the house so that they are invisible yet always right where you need them.

There are hidden high efficiency LED light strips in a grove on the floor and ceiling so that your home comes to life with the gentle glow of indirect lighting.

You can choose between daytime white (blue tone) and nighttime white (yellow tone) or up to 64 million color hues to customize the mood of each room. Advanced lighting effects and animations are also possible.

KITCHEN WITH A VIEW

You will have endless inspiration to create fantastic meals for friends and family with the inspiring views you will have from your kitchen floating more than 10 feet over the water. This kitchen gives you everything you ever wanted in a kitchen with views so good you wonder how you lived without it for so long.

PANORAMIC WINDOWS

One of the stand out features of SeaPods is their massive panoramic windows.

Engineering these has been a huge challenge. Making them is an even bigger challenge that took 18 months of searching to find the right source of materials, processes, expertise, and suppliers.

All windows have a special UV tint on them to help reduce interior heating and to give you privacy. From the outside they will have a mirror-like finish. When viewed from the inside looking out you will have a bluish tint. UV tinted windows is essential for living on the ocean with sunlight reflecting inside your Pod from both the sun and the sea.

WASTE TREATMENT

We are developing a solid waste incinerator that will turn toilet waste into a tablespoon of harmless non-toxic ash. Waste heat from incineration will be used to make hot water for showers, baths, and sinks. Liquids from the toilets will go to a blackwater storage tank for further treatment or periodic removal. A waterless urinal will also be offered to further reduce unnecessary water usage.

ENDLESS SHOWER

One of the most wasteful things in any home is the shower.

On floating homes we have the additional challenge of having to periodically empty grey water tanks from water used in the shower and other places onboard.

Thanks to the inspiration and a partnership with the open source team at ShowerLoop we are working towards reducing shower water consumption by up to 90%. This is done using a continuous active 3 step water filtration process.

We also recommend using a Nebia shower head. The Nebia shower head creates micro fine streams of water which give you a higher pressure shower than normal and it helps to reduce water consumption by 60%. The microfine spray also covers your skin better resulting in a cleaner feeling and better heat transference.

Now you never need to feel guilty for indulging in a long relaxing shower.

BATH SPA UPGRADES

Reset, relax and refresh in a floating bath spa. You Pod experience can be upgraded to include shower massage jets, a massive 850 liter bathtub with underwater massage jets with multicolor overhead LED lights and underwater LED mood lighting.

SHOWER CLIMBING WALL

The shower is the main access point to get to the roof of the Pod. We decided to put a bespoke climbing wall in the shower instead of a ladder so you have access to the roof in a fun and unique way. You can choose from four different bespoke styles of Shower Climbing Grips designed exclusively for SeaPods.

SMART RING

Unlock advanced smart home functionality with a wearable smart ring. The rings can unlock your front door, activate the shower or bath to your custom preset temperature, turn on your favorite music or playlist, turn on lights, and more.

We have partnered with Looptronics to ensure that each ring is securely provisioned to just one owner so no one else can access your home. Ring copies can’t be made without your authorization.

WIRELESS CHARGING

We have built Pods with invisible wireless charging pads throughout so you never need to look for charging cables or power outlets. Each charging pad is hidden under the surface of counters in each room with an indicator light that activates when charging has started. As part of our low EMF home design you can turn off the charging pads with the touch of a button.

WATER AUTONOMY

We are constantly hearing about the global rise in water shortages in major cities, water rationing, crop failure because of extreme drought, and increasing pollution in the worlds fresh water resources.

Ocean Builders core philosophy is to build homes that are as autonomous as possible and water is one of the most important elements of autonomy.

Water autonomy is not just about having water available but by using the water you have more efficiently and purifying it so it is of the highest quality possible without toxins that often find their way into city water supplies.

SeaPods make fresh water by desalinating salt water.

SeaPods intelligently recycle water to reduce water by up to 90%. This effectively stretches one gallon into ten gallons.

World’s Top Aquatect

When we first started on this journey we had a desire to create an inspiring new vision of what life on the water can be like. We hired the world’s top architect for floating structures, Koen Olthuis, to help us design a revolutionary home with an even more revolutionary living experience.

Koen studied Architecture and Industrial Design at the Delft University of Technology. In 2007, he was included on Time Magazine’s list of most influential people in the world due to the increasing worldwide interest in marine developments. The French magazine Terra Eco selected him in 2011 as one of 100 green persons who will change the world.

Koen has played an instrumental role in bringing our vision to life by merging architecture with art and futuristic design to capture the beauty and simplicity of an incredible lifestyle on the water.
