Sail-Inspired German Houseboats of Modern Steel & Glass

Floating homes have to strike a delicate balance between livability and maximization of limited square footage. Most defer to the latter and form naturally into cubes as a result, but some, like this one, bend to accommodate their occupants better as well.

From steeltec37,  this modular design uses steel frame and glass infill elements to create a lightweight core living space – one side, however, bends to deflect direct sun, wind, waves and spray, while also creating a more private enclosure.

Sister and brother developers Kerstin and Thomas Wilde work together as architect and engineer, crafting custom buildings but also proposing broadly-deployable solutions such as this floating home – something that can stand alone or with sibling structures, each visually protected from the next.
