Floating platform design project Recreational Island developed a unique concept of anchored folding platforms that can become hotel rooms or summer houses in the future. A floating house will make it possible to enjoy your own small island that includes indoor and outdoor living spaces with a pool, a small boat and a water sport station.

The impressive and functional anchored platform Recreational Island from designer Henry Ward, www.recreationalisland.com/ is an interesting design concept of an innovative large yacht accessory that shows great potential. The idea can be used for designing a getaway hotel rooms and cottages that can be folded up and transformed into a container-like shape for transportation and winter storage.

The Recreational Island has been designed to optimise available space, whether it is opened out on the water, or tucked away in the garage of your super yacht. It is deployed using two standard overhead cranes and once in the water it is towed using a second tender to a preferred location.

Once there, a pressurised hydraulic system opens the Island out, complete with all the fittings. Four anchors hold it in place while you enjoy your time on and around your Island.

Recreational Island is a stationary folding platform design idea that can have many applications, including private vacations, business and military purposes. And maybe in the future floating folding platforms can be used as small floating houses for romantic getaways or as hotel rooms, providing more privacy.

Hotel rooms and floating houses in the future

Recreational Island platform is not large, 8 m x 10 m (23 ft x 33 ft), providing enough space for adding a small summer cabin with space saving interior design, comfortable furnishings, a deck, gazebo, pool and outdoor furniture. It looks that creating a shipping container-like floating house that can be easily transported to a container terminal will be possible in the future.
