A houseboat on the eilbek canal

Positioned within a waterway in Hamburg, Germany, and officially completed in 2010, the Houseboat on the Eilbek Canal by Sprenger von der Lippe is a seamless juxtaposition of a secluded, outdoor environment with a contemporarily designed facade and interior layout. As the title implies, the design is a floating residence that aligns the floor level along the water with a spacious living room, private bedrooms and an elevated kitchen and dining space. Making use of the natural surroundings, the abode capitalizes on the nearby vegetation to augment the build-out with a degree of privacy and introversion.
