Atypical Family Home: Navigable Houseboat in Amsterdam by BBVH Architects
Have a look at this incredible navigable houseboat transformed by BBVH Architects Rotterdam into a contemporary living space! The story of the project goes something like this: Artist Laura and restaurant owner John needed a bigger houseboat because of family expansion. Their eye fell on a 40 meters long Belgian Spitz Barge which had just retired from its long life of hauling freight over the European rivers. They wanted the ship to remain navigable so no alternation could be made to the engine, steering installation and all other aspects concerning the safety and certification of the ship.
