Having started as an idea for a cabin that floats on water ever so gently the ended up as a cabin on stilts that still allows its owner to enjoy live on a lake without breaking the local building codes.
€ 12000 of the total budget were used to improve the energy-efficiency insulation and structural integrity of the old house while € 6000 went towards giving the interior a contemporary transformation.
Designed by Feste Landscape / Architecture the 26-sqaure meter cabin has a small mezzanine level and a stylish deck that allows its denizens to relax outdoors and enjoy a stunning view of the lake and the landscape beyond.
Life here seems both snug and relaxing with modern comforts being cleverly intertwined with classic aesthetics. An open double-height living area sits at the heart of the home with a large dining area and kitchen next to it.
