Catamaran Cabin Floats Complete with Deck & Crow’s Nest

Like some sleek modern-day pirate ship, this floating home comes with a roped-off (rooftop) deck and a crow’s nest perch towering above. Coupled with the lower-level living quarters, it makes for a fascinating eco-hotel concept for Holland.

Marijn Beije Design provided angles of view from every space on the vessel, down to the sleeping and bathroom spaces with windows right out onto the water (but blinds for privacy, too). This recent grad has clearly spent a bit too much time in studio as of late.

As for keeping the place clean: everything drains down, of course, leading to a relatively simple solution for letting water out of the bathroom zone, for instance, plus both decks and even spray-washing the bedroom.
