Residential Architecture: Water Villa by Framework Architecten and Studio Prototype: “..Timber batons create geometric patterns across the exterior of this houseboat in Amsterdam by architects Framework Architecten and Studio Prototype..Named Water Villa, the boat is moored on a canal in the south-west of the city and features a sunken floor below the level of the water..An atrium at the centre of the house connects the children’s rooms in the basement with the ground floor living and dining room, as well as with the first floor bedroom and study..Narrow gaps in the timber-clad facade reveal the positions of glass doors and windows on the two upper floors..One window on the top floor features a remote controlled shutter, which folds up for additional privacy..”  Sleek, graphic exterior; ample glazing, natural light; interesting interior volumes; vertical exterior graphism echoed in interior detailing..
