FLOATING HOUSES

X-Float are a collection of floating holiday homes built as part of the X2 River Kwai Resort, in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Designed by Agaligo Studio, a Thailand based design studio established in 2002 by Sitt Therakomen and Preechaya Therakomen,  “X-Float resembles a volumetric evolution of a raft, a primitive man-made floating platform, from 2 dimensional to 3 dimensional – to a livable unit. This makes X-Float a crossbreed of vernacular and modern architecture.” The floating units are made from steel framing and plywood, each one has a simple style and contemporary furnishings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a waterfront deck. There are also rooftop lounges, which are accessed by stairs on the side of each float home.
