OLD SHIPS, NEW HOMES
If the plans of a group of Dutch architects come to fruition, a number of old cargo freighters will be lifted on to land and transformed into modern, eco-friendly homes.
The concept is a collaboration between Studio Komma, Studio Kees Marcelis, and landscape architect Buro Poelmans Reesink. Their vision for Holland’s first Marine-doc Estate will see between six and 14 ships established in two communities.
At around 65m in length, the ship-homes will feature an indoor garage, a spacious living room, three bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and a large rooftop garden terrace – with the vessels’ nautical flavour being retained as much as possible.
The vessels will be set in a natural landscape, with access to open water. It is not clear how much you will pay to own one of the maritime homes.
