The light, open floorplan of the living area is filled with high quality Danish furniture, including a couple of Jacobsen‘s egg chairs, and it features a wonderful FSC Douglas Fir flooring. The kitchen cabinets are made from grey recycled porcelain that are lighter than conventional materials. An old wooden door is being used as a multipurpose table, beautifully contrasting with the classic Danish furniture that will never go out of fashion.

The bottom floor has a big flexible central space, making it easy to access any of the floating house’s many rooms. The sauna, which is for “sweating bad spirits away,” gets humidity from outdoor tiles and redistributes the hot air through out the house. Fully flexible, the spaces become even bigger thanks to sliding mirrored walls and the central space gas a carpet inspired by sea currents.
