Spotted on Skeppsholmen, here is a 1909 barge converted into an inspiring 1,600 square foot floating apartment.
This now two bedroom, two bath home is located in Södermalm, a district in central Stockholm, Sweden.
If your big dream is to live aboard a boat, and if you are not afraid of huge heating bills, this one is currently offered at nearly $800,000.
Stanwood-based studio Designs Northwest Architects has completed the Lake Union Float Home project.
Designed for a retired couple who collect regional art and enjoy being on the water, this 1,200 square foot, two bedroom houseboat is located on Lake Union in Seattle, Washington, USA.
According to the architects, “the concept was to design the structure to fit in to the wharf buildings found along the waterfront. Refined waterfront industrial. The roof top deck has great views of downtown Seattle and a putting green.”
