Resting on the water, +31 Architects latest residence offers a gently curving form complete with a roof terrace.  While the main level holds the living spaces, a flight of stairs brings residents to the terrace which offers wide views over the Amstel.  Lowering the bedroom half a story, allows for a logical transition not only to the above terrace by also to below for access from the ground floor to the basement.   A large void brings daylight into the basement and allows provides a visual connection betweent he floors.   According to the architects, “The split-level principle of the watervilla is accentuated by the round design of the facade.”
