German studio Sprenger Von Der Lippe completed in 2010 the ‘Houseboat on the Eilbek canal’, a floating residence situated between two bridges along a waterway in Hamburg, Germany. The most important thing is the fact that it offers a very introverted experience for inhabitants because the moorings are positioned significantly lower than the street level and the sloped banks. It’s like you found a shelter to escape the urban crowded atmosphere. The floor at the water’s surface contains the private bedrooms, and the upper level contains the public spaces (kitchen and dining area). Making use of the natural surroundings, the house becomes a secluded crib where you can better understand what being connected with nature really means.
