Houseboat on the Eilbekkanal by Rost Niderehe Architects

Hamburg-based studio Rost Niderehe Architects has designed this 1,184 square foot houseboat on the Eilbek canal in Hamburg, Germany. The formal architectural language should be clear and simple. This is reflected both in the floor plans as well as in creation of the individual rooms. Using a single wall that wraps like a spiral from the outside to the inside, the rooms are developed from public use on the outside (kitchen, dining room) to private use on the inside (bedroom, bathroom).

Earl Ferguson Construction is unique for many reason, including possessing a history of over 150 years as master builders in Muskoka. Nestled in the shorelines of Lake Rosseau, Joseph and Muskoka are hundreds of boathouses. They often take clients on the water to see many of our own custom designed and crafted boathouses. Their boat houses are constructed and finished to be much more than shelters for your watercraft. They design each one to be complimentary to the main cottage and the uses our clients have in mind. Some feature three or more bays, usable space on a second level, storage for a golf cart and we’ve also custom designed space for saunas.

Designed by architects TYIN tegnestue, the building is made of materials that were salvaged from a dilapidated boathouse on the site, plus new grey-patinated pine. Completed in January 2011 for a total budget of $45,000, this eighteenth century boathouse was torn down, rebuilt and converted into a contemporary summer home by the architects. The Naust paa Aure is located in Møre og Romsdal county, a remote area of Norway. Originally there was an old naust at the site which had to be torn down because of its bad state. The distinct qualities of the old naust became key aspects when designing the new building

Muskoka Lakes Boathouse

This rebuilt boathouse contains a new 600sq.ft. second storey guest suite – complete with kitchenette, living space, three piece washroom, bedroom and roof terrace. Situated at the end of a narrow bay, the design mediates between extended views out to the wide vista of the distant lake and the immediacy of the enclosed forested shoreline of the bay. Its design in the wilderness attempts to strike a balance between modernism and the vernacular, building and nature, light and dark, as well as the intellect and the senses–all through its conceptual arrangements, material palette, spatial organization and construction methods.
