Floating house?

Floating Villa is one of the few floating houses in Norway. It is not widespread in the Nordic countries yet, but is a common sight in the rest of the world, and is becoming increasingly popular.

It is common to distinguish between floating houses and houseboats. Floating houses are often permanently anchored and houseboats have their own propulsion

and is registered as a boat. Both are a very climate-friendly form of housing. No blasting or digging and the house is movable.

We at Floating Villa have been around a lot in Europe and the rest of the world to look at modern homes on the water. 



Floating Villa was built half-finished in Vesterålen and then transported by ship to Bergen where it was completed on Askøy. The house was located for 6 weeks at Bryggen in Bergen before it was towed into Damsgårdssundet where it was rented out for 3 years.


Bergen municipality chose to ban floating homes and houseboats. Thus, it was to find a municipality that was future-oriented and solution-oriented, and it was Øygarden municipality. 

The house is now located on idyllic Nautnes. 



Huset lå 6 uker ved Bryggen i Bergen før det ble slept inn i Damsgårdssundet hvor det ble leid ut i 3 år.


Fra Bergen til Nautnes 

Bergen kommune valgte å forby flytende boliger og husbåter. Dermed var det å finne en kommune som var fremtidsrettet og løsningsorientert, og det var Øygarden kommune. 

Huset lå på Nautnes i 2 år. I august 2023 ble huset flyttet til Holmen utenfor Bjorøy. Det er 18 minutter med bil fra  Bergen og 200 meter fra den velrenommerte Cornelius Sjømatrestaurant.
