Master carpenter and freelance designer Sascha Akkermann and interior designer Flo Florian of Confused-Direction Design imagined a floating house that has all the necessities of a modern home while offering an alternative to living on land.
Floating on the Hunte River near the city of Oldenberg, Germany, is the modern 45 sqm water cabin. Akkermann took into consideration the long tradition of living on water seen in different cultures: “It was important to me not to build a simple log cabin on the water, but to create a valuable home balancing modern design and maritime flair.”
This ambitious Houseboat project has all the features needed for a unique living experience. Stylish details matched the simple interior design, creating a modern sophistication somewhat enhanced by the elegance of the cat living there.
