A Boat That Sits On Land

“The Houseboat” Is Not A Real Boat After All..

“The Houseboat” was largely inspired by two upturned hulls, hence it’s name. Overlooking the Poole Harbor in Southern England, the open-plan, staggered / multilevel sections make the Housebout such a unique home! It makes wide use of timber with a solid concrete base. And check out the nautical interior decor.. they add a nice touch to the sea-inspired theme.

..The dwelling is based upon a staggered section with a half-basement.This configuration allows for an open staircase, which in turn connects a series of interconnected volumes, rather than individual rooms. Its unique shape is seen from a long distance and catches an eye.
Accessed through the trees, mole architects’ curved design disguises the house’s relatively large scale. Externally, black-stained timber larch boards sit above an exposed concrete base, while similar materials are also found inside the residence.
