Silverbeaver: A Houseboat on the Hunte River
By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Jan 26, 2012
Once we received photos of this amazing boathouse, we had to share the project with you, so that you benefit from amazing inspiration. Created by designer Flo Florian and architect and designer Sascha Akkermann of Confused-Direction Design, the second model of floating home, named the Silverbeaver, features modern design details that fabricate a comfortable and stylish appeal. Located in Oldenburg, Germany, on the Hunte River, the boat house displays a sleek design, dressed in a wood skin that integrates the structure into the surrounding environment. Three main characteristics can be recognized in each space and define all the rooms, materials and textures – clear, warm and bright.
The challenge of designing a stylish, modern boat house ensured the architects and designers used the best materials for this project, like the locally resourced larch-wood, combined with carefully chosen high tech-materials. Two terraces, one of which is on the roof, invite family and friends outside, where they can enjoy summer nights and days. Light materials were combined with modern furniture and contemporary furnishings and the pet cats have comfortable beds right in the living room, where they can participate in the family get-togethers. Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann have chosen smart details for the interior, like the old model switches from the 40s, rebuild by Berker and Rosenthal.
