A great example of modern house design - a floating house. This houseboat designed by the German firm Sprenger von der Lippe fits perfectly into it waterway setting. It uses the natural landscape to provide a privacy in this quiet enclave in urban Hamburg.
The lower floor, at the water's edge, houses the bedrooms with a living room which overlooks the gently rippling water. The second story open and airy spaces which offer elevated views of the scenery from the kitchen and dining area.
