Eilbek Canal Boat House
The Houseboat on the Eilbek Canal by german practice – 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.
This dwelling offers an introverted experience for inhabitants within the quiet and secluded area. the floor at the water’s surface contains the private bedrooms, offering privacy with the inherent landforms along with a living room which overlooks the gently rippling water. the upper level contains the public spaces which offers elevated views of the scenery from the kitchen and dining area.
