Wind turbine loft living not for the faint of heart

Wind loft

Are you looking for a place where you can get away from it all?  The designers at  Morphocode ave come up with a futuristic-looking loft space.  They have combined the age-old concept of lighthouse-style dwellings and the forward-thinking fields of offshore wind turbines. (Photos)

The idea of living atop a wind turbine is not for the faint of heart, however. First of all, you’ll have to be ok with heights — and especially good at not falling from them. To this end, Morphocode has designed a system of rails to which you can clip yourself, Cliffhanger style.

Second, you should be a fairly secluded individual who is also good at repairs. The denizens of these low-density-living wind farms are meant to function as engineers and repair workers — on-call for when any of the monster turbines go down. Enjoying wind, choppy seas, rain and electrical engineering is a must. You’ll also want to seriously stock up on reading material, since high-speed Internet may not be available in all areas.

That being said, the view would be epic and at least your electric bill is taken care of. So, if a hermitage is what you’re after and carabiner is your ideal accessory, keep your fingers crossed. Your perfect community could be ready for move-in as early as 2015.
