Living and working on the water
In the Netherlands for decennia people lived and worked on the water – in housing boats, often boats that has before been used for the transport of goods.
Recently in several cities areas are designed for living and working on the water. The floating houses in these sites are specially constructed – often with a basement of concrete in contrast to the old steel boats. On IJburg you can find floating houses on Steigereiland and next year a 100% sustainable site will be constructed in the north part of Amsterdam.
