Date: 10/2011 Location: Amsterdam North Assignment: Design a boat wharf for a person and his boat chosen by you.
The design I've made is based on the fact that I'm going to live there myself. I've chosen a boat, designed by Janne Leppänen, which fits to my ideas about concious living; A solar boat. The overall style of the villa, modern, goes well with the boat. The complete ground floor is meant for storage and maintenance of the boat. In the back you'll find the lift shaft and the stairs to the first floor, where is created a loft apartment. The kitchen, living room and office are located here. These functions are visually separated by lifting the path and lowering the ceiling. The office contains 3 book cases to create more privacy. On the first floor are the bed room and the bath room with sauna. All floor provide a terrace with a great view over the water. The top floor also has a terrace on the North side for the warmer days of the year.
