A Geometrical Swimming HausBoot

I can't help but notice all the detailing of this home! Lots of different geometric shapes have been used and they all come together beautifully. This is the Silberfisch SchwimmHausBoot (floating house boat) in Oldenburg, Germany. The design was completed with furniture and accessories by Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann of German design firm Confused Direction.

When they say that to build homes on water shouldn't be a blockhouse, but one that marries Design and Maritime romance together. Flowing, water, soothing, colors of the water, smooth finishes, something that reminds you of the sea, ex. the woods in the dock, the yacht design, the fish, etc. The shape of things, and the material of things are very important, and when doing this design of the boat house, they have successfully achieved it.
