藝術家夫婦用25年打造水上浮島 Floating Island Home in Canada

 

25年前,一對窮困的藝術家夫婦?Catherine King 與 Wayne Adams認為買房置業對他們來說太過不現實,于是他們做了一個大膽的決定——“我們去建座島吧”。這個看似癡人說夢的想法,如今卻已成為現實。

 

 

他們建造的島位于加拿大的不列顛哥倫比亞省的托菲海(Tofino )岸邊,這里距離最近的城鎮乘船大約45分鐘。經過多年的經營,島上已頗具規模,包括溫室大棚、臥室、廚房、工作間、畫廊、舞蹈平臺,甚至一座燈塔。整個島嶼重量估算約500噸,所有者一切都是通過手工工具打造,沒有借助任何起重機械的幫助。

 

 

如今這座水上花園已經可以實現生態自循環,蔬菜水果來自溫室的種植,釣魚對他們來說再方便不過了。他們還時常將自己創作的一些藝術品拿到附近小鎮去出售,換取一些生活用品。太陽能電池板和光伏能源發電機提供了電力。他們管這里稱作“自由灣”,可見,生活方式多種多樣,生活同樣需要設計……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Twenty-five years ago artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams made the realization they would never have enough income to afford real estate so they made a fairly radical decision: they would build an island. Currently moored off the coast of Vancouver Island about 45 minutes by boat to the nearest town, their sprawling floating house is called called “Freedom Cove.”

The completely mobile island is made of 12 tethered sections that incorporates four greenhouses, living quarters, a kitchen, workshop, art gallery, a lighthouse and even a dance floor. Adams estimates the structure weighs in around 500 tons (a million pounds) and says everything was constructed with a handsaw and hammer without the aid of power tools.(text from thisiscolossal.com)
