This house measures 5 by 21 meter and floats in the waters of Utrecht. This offers two special conditions to its tenants. A 21 meter long plan in a 110m2 house is special, and, it floats! So one can live on, under or at water level.

The living spaces are positioned at the waterside. Terrace, dining, living, library and master bedroom form a thread of slim spaces with each a different relation to the water. One space where light, view and position of the floor to the water level varies.
