Glide on a German Waterway in This Bauhaus Hausboot

hausboot1 green
Architects don’t have to restrict themselves to land-based building, as we see here with this elegant design from the German firm Rost Niderehe Architects. They can design sleek and sophisticated “hausbootes” like this one which sits on the Eilbekkanal river in Hamburg, Germany.

A houseboat interior does not have to be poky. Usually houseboats don’t have two stories, but this one shows why it makes sense.

It means the interiors can be spacious and curvaceous. Only the kitchen and dining room is on the top floor. Living, sleeping and bathing is downstairs.

Downstairs, behind this curved wall, is a bathroom.

Behind that are stairs leading down to this almost-below-deck bedroom.

Like a previous houseboat from this firm, this new one uses a curvy brown wood to make a nautical statement with a slightly Art Deco air.

But unlike most wooden-paneled boats, inside, it is decidedly open and airy, modern and uncluttered.
