BBVH Architects Rotterdam has transformed an extraordinary navigable houseboat to a modern living space.
The steel interior of the cargo hold was then insulated with 10 centimeters of foam and covered with light colored plywood. The floor is a cast cement floor on prime of the isolation and piping. For the patio itself the major substances were an outside bathtub and a pear tree. The security of younger little ones is of program an issue on a ship and a patio is an best way of giving kids outdoor playroom without having the danger of falling overboard. The pear tree is not a frequent element on a ship but in terms of fat and size it is an easy process to for a vessel used to carry hundreds of tons sand, cement or stones. The deck-residence and steering hut have been restored and relatively modernized and are now rented out as an independent mini apartment.
