Houseboat on the Eilbek Canal

German design office sprenger von der lippe, has recently completed the ‘houseboat on the eilbek canal’, a floating residence  situated between two bridges along a waterway in Hamburg, Germany.

With the moorings positioned significantly lower  than street level and the sloped banks lined with natural vegetation, 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.
