for my 40th birthday, my husband was kind enough to take me on a canalboat tour of wales. the boat was long and narrow, and even though the quarters were cramped, it was comforting having everything in a compact living space, where clutter was prohibitive. every inch of the space was allocated for something useful, and there was no room for more.
the houseboat (or floating barge) seen on this post [called “silberfisch” (silver fish), located in oldenberg, germany] is the same idea, taken to stylish and uber functional extremes. while the vessel maintains the same general gestalt of a house boat, it’s design and interior speak more to the sophisticated design maven and homeowner. i could happily live in a space such as this, but it would take some planning, and some offsite storage for seasonal items and books!
