Glide on a German Waterway in This Bauhaus Hausboot
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.
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.
