The World's First Eco-Restorative Futuristic Floating Homes

The World's First Eco-Restorative Futuristic Floating Homes

Set to launch virtual sales next month, Ocean Builders a leading ocean innovation technology company based in Panama, is revealing their fleet of revolutionary living pods that will change the way humankind thinks about home, travel, and how to live in a future-focused world. Ocean Builders’ range of premium price-accessible Pods includes the original SeaPod built for aquatic living, the GreenPod for land use, and the EcoPod providing an ecologically and economically friendly option – all created to optimize high-quality living experiences driven by cutting-edge technology and eco-restorative sustainability.

Conceptualized by Ocean Builders President and Head of Engineering Rüdiger Koch and Chief Executive Officer Grant Romundt, the SeaPod was created as an answer to an inevitable problem. A lack of space in desirable destinations. “Everyday thousands of people all over the world move closer to the top 15 major metropolitan cities which are within 80km of a coastline – a trend that will continue to grow,” said CEO Grant Romundt. “With our experience in ocean technology innovation, we knew we could offer a path forward for offshore infrastructure that is both restorative and sustainable. We’ve been motivated by the opportunity to change and challenge the traditional real estate and tourism models and create first-in-class living experiences that can give back to our ocean environment.”


Designed by Dutch architect, Koen Olthius, who specializes in developing solutions to problems posed by urbanization and climate change, the SeaPods were created to accommodate the future needs of climate conscious residents and travelers looking to live among the waves without sacrificing the luxuries of modern living. With over 575 square-feet of panoramic windows and 360-degree unobstructed ocean views, the SeaPods offer over 830 square-feet of living space generously proportioned over 2.5 floors and include a master bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and patio all situated 7.5 feet above the waves. The Seapods also offer 1,250 square-feet of storage space.


An exclusive destination within itself, the Pods elevate luxury living with state-of-the-art technology, top-tier amenities and customizable applications that will tailor both the design and functionality of each Pod to accommodate each resident and guest. Native Pod software allows for ease of home management from lighting, and temperature control to more advanced luxuries such as setting shower temperature and water pressure. The software will continue to update as services and automations are added allowing each Pod to evolve with the latest capabilities that are constantly being developed. A wearable smart ring will offer residents another means for conveniently controlling various touchpoints and applications throughout the Pods – with a simple wave of the hand, the rings can unlock doors, turn on music, and more.

Aerial Delivery Drones, customized and perfected to withstand high winds and other overwater conditions will be used to deliver food, medicine, and everyday smaller items while the ASTRO (Autonomous Surface Transport & Recycling Operations) ASV (Autonomous Surface Vessel) will be able to safely transport up 440 pounds for larger deliveries including luggage, furniture, and for resident transport to and from the SeaPods. The ASTRO ASV will also act as an ocean recycling vessel to help collect trash and debris to clean up the area surrounding the Pods.


The launch of the SeaPods also marks the introduction of the eco-restorative home. With the driving focus on sustainability, every aspect of the Pods from design to application and operations has been created to benefit the surrounding environment. Through the eco restorative home Ocean Builders has developed the ability to create a natural habitat for ocean life to occupy and thrive based on the design and engineering of each Pod – ultimately attracting sea life that generates flourishing underwater ecosystems.

Speaking directly to the new, first-of-its-kind offering: “We no longer live in a world of impossibilities, Romundt continued. “We are sending people to space and childlike dreams are quickly becoming a reality. We are creating a new real estate asset class and luxury lifestyle that will redefine how and where we live while optimizing the health, safety, and sustainability of the environments that house the Pods and the residents and guests that will ultimately occupy them.”


By the end of 2022, Ocean Builders will have the first 100 fully owned custom Pods in production or delivered. A second deployment of over 1,000 fully owned Pods will begin in 2023.
