Floating in the Prinsengrachtcanal this shelter offers a wide variety of spaces:
- a dark and quiet bedroom,
- a dry and light study,
- a small, private terrace on the water,
- a broad entrance at streetlevel
and, on top of that:
- a sunny roofgarden.
Whilst materials used respond to other houseboats, the symmetrical plan and the tripartite elevation respond to the neoclassical architecture along the Amsterdam canals.
