A Room WIth An Ocean View

Some athletes will go to extreme lengths to live the open water swimming lifestyle. Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew may have just designed the right house for those destined to be one with the water.

Malcew explains about the boat house, “[It is a] concept project investigating idea of living on the water. The floating structure can be easily moved form one place to another.

Internal arrangement, materials and finishes can be customized depending on preferred inhabitants needs. The house is affordable and sustainable, angled roof is designed in a way to give solar panels optimize exposure during the whole day. Overhang protects from the sun and gives shade over the terrace. On both sides there are wooden sliding panles which can open or totally close the interior. All of the rooms and bathrooms have view on the water
