This Water Villa is a lovely houseboat designed by Framework Architecten & Studio Prototype in Amsterdam. I love how the relation between the water and house is key to the design of the houseboat. You notice that there’s a subtle playfulness between open and closed and geometric patterns across the exterior of the villa created by the timber batons. The vertically designed patterns, are an abstract allusion to the water and provide not only optimal privacy but also a dynamic display of light and direction. Aesthtic Acitivist loves!
