Angular Timber House

The team at i29 architects has designed a three-story house in schoonschip – Amsterdam's new floating neighborhood. An angular timber house is characterized as a simple yet smart design that embraces sustainability, the eco-friendly and energy-efficient principles.

The purpose of the project is to revitalize a disused canal to create homes for over 100 residents. The site is energy self-sufficient, employs circular building practices, and showcases a real example of sustainable living. A smart jetty connects the 46 floating households with each other and the quay. It serves as a social connector on the top and is a functional and sustainable connector with all the energy, waste, and water lines down below the surface.

The floating home exterior design is the result of space dimensional study. All areas are connected to the atrium which comprises three floors. The layout is extended with a split level connection to a loggia terrace just above the water level. The interior and façade have views to the outside.
