Palm House, Taggs Island
New House Boat

This project involved the replacement of a single storey houseboat with a new two storey dwelling constructed from a steel frame on a floating steel pontoon.

The building maximises the views possible up down and across the Thames. Two sets of foldaside doors allow the interior living space to be entirely open to the river on one side and the clients lanscaped garden on the other.

The client wrote of her new home "The space is truly the most wonderful I have ever lived in and if I could recreate the same thing here I would, not the being on the water bit, but the layout of the house is almost perfect I use every area in a seamless way so move between dining area to living area to study area in a very fluid way. Having lived in conventional houses before I can really appreciate the benefits of not having walls between rooms."
