It becomes popular to live on water in the Netherlands, but the houseboats shouldn’t be ordinary appearance. The water house, I’m going to describe, has modern and elegant look. It situated in The Amstel River in Amsterdam and was designed for the specific needs of owner. His desire was to have an open plan and the best view of the water. The curved lines of the facade are followed by this requirement. The kitchen is open and gives a panoramic view over the Amstel River and cozy terrace. On the ground level there is also a living area and a bedroom. Going upstairs you’ll find bathroom, study and other necessary rooms. To accentuate the round front lines of the exterior it is decorated with shiny aluminum. The white-plastered interior walls and ceilings create a seamless passage from outside to inside.
