Inspired by tiny creatures that lived in the ocean some 500 million years ago, the environmentally-friendly Triobis 65 semi-submerged dwelling, from the Italian Giancarlo Zema Design Group, offers up to six visitors the opportunity to explore bays, sea parks and other calm waters in the comfort of a modern, low impact eco-vessel.

“The main aim of this project is to allow one and all to live in a fantastic, unusual environment in a self-sufficient non-pollution habitat," explains the designers.

Using solar panels to power the vessels instruments and a hydrogen fuel cell to drive the electric engines, the 20m (66ft) long dwelling unit is equipped with a joystick for driving control and has the ability to rotate a full 360 degrees.

With several levels, situated both above and below the water line, the semi-submerged vessel offers 1.4m (4.6ft) of viewing area above the ocean and 0.8m (2.6ft) just below it. For the complete underwater experience the Triobis features an amazing underwater observation globe with acrylic windows offering optimum underwater viewing.

An additional interesting feature of this project is the ability to group the Triobis 65s together to form floating circular colonies.
