If you’ve gone through a divorce you know how difficult it is splitting up assets, not to mention who gets the house or whether you have to sell it. With that in mind a Dutch design and engineering studio has designed a floating house that can be divided into separate units in case of divorce.
Studio OBA calls it Prenuptial Housing…
“The designed concept home is a response to the increasing divorce rates in todays’s society. Together with concept creator Omar Kbiri (co-founder of Maak), we hope that ‘Prenuptial Housing’ is a solution for the increasing number of marriages that end up in divorce.
The architectural design consists of two prefabricated units that appear to be one. They embrace each other and form the foundation of a modern home.
When couples feel they are drifting apart, the house initiates a ‘break up’, by detaching the two units which then go solo on the water.”
