Houseboat conversions are getting more frequent around here, but a completely new build is quite rare: Thesayboat houseboat is owned and designed by Marek Ridky of the Czech Republic.

There’s not much you can do with them, given their specific designs. However, ambitious architects and designers manage to revive these spaces and turn them into commercial spaces or cozy homes. This apartment, for example, is inside a former radio factory.
