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.

  • When you enter a living room and immediately feel more calm and relaxed, you know it has served its purpose. The neutral and soft color palette was chosen to provide the serenity we all need when arriving home. The Thomson Sofa is readily available to sit on its soft leather and velvet, which give a luxurious and sensual touch alongside the Galea Armchairs, with their elegant silhouettes, bringing back an ancient inspiration that fits well within Marbella's history.
