Latvian firm NRJA stands for No Rules, Just Architecture, and they kind of prove their point with the designs they come up with. Floating barn concept, imagined especially for Latvia is a lakeside residence designed for Latvian climate. During the winters, the house sits on solid ice, for summers the lake reaches the Barn, covering the ground with water and reaching under the residence.

The two story structure has a small deck, bathroom and a living area on the first floor, while the sleeping area itself moves to the second floor. The base of the house features storage tanks for clean water, filtered graywater and fuel.
