Modern Houseboat (7 pics)

If you've ever dreamed about living on water, this modern houseboat designed by Rost Niderehe Architects is for you. When the architects first started planning, they wanted to create a residence that had the character of a boat and the comfort of a traditional family home. The result is this stunning houseboat located in Hamburg, Germany. Made of mainly wood and steel, the houseboat contains a single wall that wraps like a spiral from the outside to the inside. The kitchen and dining room are found on the upper deck, while the bedroom and bathroom are on the lower deck. And if you're ever bored and need a change, there's no need to pack up or hire movers. With the help of a tug, you can easily move to a new location.
