Floating Office Rotterdam

Designed by Dutch studio Powerhouse Company, this spectacular Floating Office in Rotterdam is built to float in case sea levels rise, completely negating the effects of climate change. It is the biggest and most sustainable office in the world, and is a perfect example of large-scale ultra-sustainable construction on city waters. The office building features public facilities, like a restaurant and a large outdoor terrace with a floating pool in the Maas river as a special addition. A workday can be enjoyed, surrounded by water, while relaxing on the spacious deck.
