Dutch Floating House
This house is a search for the balance between openness and a sense of security in an urban setting – with the wish for an optimal flow of the in- and outside spaces. The gardens are a green intermediate between the private and public space. The house, surrounded by water, changing from swimming pool to ice-skating ring, gives a holiday feeling all year round, from the very first step you take onto the jetty.

Floating Home Seattle
The Float Home is situated on Lake Union, and inhabits what was one of the last unoccupied slips. The Seattle Houseboat and Float Home community is unique: the residents share access and live in close proximity to one another, yet there is a community diversity that is unrivalled. Some of this stems from the fact that the community was not developed at any one time, while some can be attributed to the immensity of style that adorns these homes (you don’t see a ton of fabric architecture here).
