House boats have traditionally been an alternative lifestyle for those irresistably drawn to a water bound lifestyle. This subculture of boat dwellers either work in the fishing industry or living on a budget have simply have made their humble boat a home. In fact more recently we are seeing custom designed boats becoming a permanent place for luxury living.
This completely original boat home seems a bit different than your typical houseboat so we explored it inside and out for a better understanding of this popular phenomenon. And now we’re taking you on a personal tour…hope the owners don’t mind!
Situated in Oldenberg, Germany, this boat was named “Silberfisch” which means Silverfish and its making a big splash for its modern dexterity and unique shape.
The design firm, Confused Direction, clearly decided not to waste any space. Hey, a house is not a home unless complete with proper roof deck and garden! Brilliant…
The view through these windows makes them look like architectural details and the perfect accent color for the space!
