Houseboat Ex 1


Marine – Houseboat + Interior Design Concept

With years of experience restoring, building and living aboard boats (understanding all the considerations and complexities), designing a bespoke houseboat for this client came naturally.

Minimal, clean lines of blackbutt timber and charcoal aluminium were used throughout for a soft visual connection to the Australian river landscape.

The large open plan living space incorporates integrated butler’s cupboard and cocktail bar and a 5-metre-long marble bench/dining table for that extra special cruising experience.

An eco-friendly pellet combustion burner offers a truly cosy feel when the temperature drops. The master cabin at the rear looks out onto an epic deck with built in spa and daybeds integrated into engine bays.

It is the way we get to use spaces and interact with our environment that truly showcases great design. These main factors drove the design direction, giving the client a custom build that suits their lifestyle, now and well into the future.
