What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here we zoom in on the modern-looking one that is two floors with a roof deck above. Each floor features sliding glass doors and more outdoor space for taking advantage of the location.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Connecting Home and Ground
Floating on the surface. A houseboat in Vancouver, B.C., floats along the surface of the water, able to move simply by weighing anchor and letting go of the lines.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 18 Winners from the Architect's Toolbox
Connections. Homes connect to the earth in different ways. Some burrow and anchor themselves into the ground. Others gently touch down in the most minimal way. Some seem to glide along the surface, appearing as if they can slide to and fro.Establishing the way a home is connected to the ground goes well beyond technical, structural concerns and speaks to how we understand our relationship to the earth.See some of the possibilities here.
In a houseboat, you can be up close and personal with the neighbors on the dock but removed from the pace of the city.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Context
A waterside dwelling in a city can complement its context with an urbane, vertical design, enhanced by its reflection in the water's surface.
"The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face." — William Makepeace ThackerayA city is an ideal setting for these reflections, especially when the water bends, twists and turns the reflections, as in a Canaletto painting.
