We have designed and built two prototype low cost zero carbon floating river homes, the first zero carbon houseboats designed for reasonably affordable suburban living in the UK.

We believe this new typolology will become as representative of the 21stCentury as the neo Tudor semi detached represented the great expansion of many UK cities in the 1930's. This is how many ordinary people will live as climate change accelerates.

We believe the ZED boats demonstrate an optimistic, viable urban and suburban future set in a beautiful landscape, and that the sooner communities plan to both reduce their carbon footprints and recognise the imminent threat of all the CO2 already emitted by our industrialised society - the more chance we have of avoiding melodramatic disasters.
