Amphibious-house

Goringhem, The Netherlands
Design 2005



The idea of a houseboat is turned into a new prototype of “amphibious house” that is capable to float, to move, to sink and to adapt itself to floods. Floating and rotating together with openings throughout the outer shell enable the house to perform as a new bioclimatic organism. Reflecting quality of the shell surface together with transparency of the facade merges with the landscape and gives dwellers opportunity to enjoy various kinds of sensual experiences of the water and the surrounding environment.
