WATER VILLA in Amsterdam, Netherlands by +31ARCHITECTS

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: +31ARCHITECTS

Q: When designing a houseboat or structure sitting alongside a body of water, what are the considerations or alterations you have to make as opposed to a “regular” building? What is the most difficult part to resolve in a floating house?

A: There are a few aspects for floating houses that are of the outmost importance:

Weight:

You always have to make calculations for the weight of the boat because it has to float.

the Volume of the hull that is below the water level has to be compensated by the weight of the floating building. If you have a displacement of 1m³ of water you will need to compensate this with a weight of about 1000 kg. Before execution we make calculations off the total weight, including the extra weight that people will need for furniture, books and all other house stuff that they will put in the floating house.

The mere fact that the gearwheel factory is still there, right in the old centre of Amsterdam, makes the building special. This warehouse from the early 20th century, with its sawtooth roof and brick walls overgrown with ivy, is like a green oasis in the city. The building has now been transformed by architect Ronald Janssen in cooperation with Donald Osborne Architect into twelve residences, in commission from real estate developer Buro Amsterdam.

Botel in Amsterdam, Netherlands by MMX architecten + Jord den Hollander

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: MMX architecten

“How can you improve the look of the hotelboat, in order to make it fit in with the dynamics and creativity of the NDSM wharf, in the north of Amsterdam?”

This was the question that Botel-owner Sandra Chedi put to MMX-architecten (Arjan van Ruyven & Michiel van Pelt) in 2011. Together with filmmaker and architect Jord den Hollander they developed a bold plan. Five 6.5 -meter-high hotelrooms in the shape of huge toy letters make up the silhouette B O T E L on top of the ship. The white hotel boat has been given a cheerful crown, referring to the chimneys of the ocean liners that used to come off the now derelict NDSM slipways.
