Text description provided by the architects. X-Architects closely collaborated with Leen Vandaele, interior decorator ar¬chitect and design consultant from Squisito, to create a houseboat that in¬ventively combines the nautical lifestyle of relaxation and enjoyment with crisp architectural tectonics.

Houseboat / X-Architects - Column

The fundamental structure of the floating home is created from two catamaran beams (for stability), stainless steel and glass. The layout of the structure, which is 20 meters by 6.7 meters, includes an upper deck containing a concealed kitchen, living room and an informal dining area. The Lower deck houses the bedrooms, bathroom and steering cabin.

It also features a terrace, with spiral staircase access, that can be used as a sun deck. The interior is a blend of soft white tones, with contemporary furniture and chic bathroom fittings adding to the modern yet cozy ambiance. The architectural lighting makes this boat house more striking in the evening while it glides smoothly along the lucid waters of Mina Seyahi.
