Houseboat with Split-Level: Half Sits on Surface, Half Underwater
A casing aluminum-clad exterior rounds up into a rooftop floor to create extra outdoor space without compromising the small site footprint, curvilinear form or violating the building rules for height (limiting the above-water portion to just 3 meters tall)
Living rooms, kitchens and other common areas benefit from views demand less by way of privacy and are thus set on the surface. But below the surf sit bathrooms and bedrooms, enclosed by the cool dark water all around.
Derived from (and driving) the form is a looping solid that forms the floors, ceiling and short sides of the home (blocking out neighbors, too), but which leaves windows on the important mainland and seaside facades.
This modern-but-site-specific dutch houseboat was designed by Plus31, and even in the packed residential waterways of Amsterdam it will definitely stand out from the crowd.Field in: candice olsen house boat decorating, houseboat basement, modern contemporary 3-storey split level plans, small house plan modern design split level, small houseboat floor plans
