Moored in a beautiful and tranquil spot in a typically Dutch landscape, the houseboat is surrounded by open water on three sides with uninterrupted views to the horizon. The client wanted a minimalist look with a simple ambiance and character, in keeping with the landscape.

With that in mind, designers opted for a striking box-shape, finished in black-stained red cedar. Despite strict building regulations dictating its height, they were able to realize two storeys: the bedrooms and basement lie below the waterline.

When the shutters are closed, the exterior of the houseboat functions like a shell-like enclosure. When drawn back and the patio doors opened, a big ‘open living’ feel is created. Finally, the high floor-to-ceiling glass windows – which can be fully opened – create a powerful sense of connection with the natural surroundings.
