When you encounter a quirky but intriguing design, you certainly wonder if it is Malaysian. But there's no doubt that Malaysian-born Muhammad Hakim Azly, a brilliant designer, has received USD $100,000 for the creation of his Airbnb, which was inspired by coconut.
From among the tens of thousands of submissions received from all across the world, 100 ambitious designers will be chosen to create their wacky space concepts through the OMG! Fund.
The "Coconut Drifting in the Sea" floating home by Hakim is situated not far from Tanjung Rhu beach in Langkawi. On their journey to the gorgeous property, which is only accessible by boat or kayak, guests can take in a breathtaking view of the islands in all directions.
He and his wife, Reena, who is also involved in this design, were walking on the beach one day when they spotted fruits floating in the water.
Together, they developed a design for a home that conveys the idea of enjoying the voyage to an unknown destination and was inspired by the imagery of a coconut drifting at sea.
