Stranded Ark, Amsterdam, 2004
The Municipality of Amsterdam is considering alternatives for living on the water. Among the designs by Waterstudio, this ‘Stranded Ark’is a dwelling that is built half on land and half floating on water. The split-level configuration makes it possible to enter the house at quay level, after which you can choose to go either to the living-room level or to the basement level containing several bedrooms. The basement level is designed to be highly suitable for home office use.
