Docked in Copenhagen’s Teglholmen harbor, this floating home combines nautical and industrial inspiration.

Designed and created by its owners in 2005, this modern houseboat features tantalizing amenities, including a central heating system, a contemporary kitchen and bathroom, and a wood-burning stove in the living room

The rooftop terrace overhangs the ground floor terrace, creating a covered outdoor area that is sheltered from the elements.

The ship-like, floating home comprises a two-story cuboid sitting atop a V-shaped platform that resembles the hull of a boat. Its gangway-style external staircases add to the nautical look, as does the chimney of the wood-burning stove, which pops out of the roof terrace to recall the funnel of a ship.

The surrounding network of canals crisscrossing the harbor create a cozy and tranquil atmosphere.

Mainly made from wood and formed of simple geometric shapes, it has a classically Scandinavian look. Its streamlined elements are softened by the horizontal wooden cladding slats, herringbone wooden flooring, and timber window frames. Brass door handles, fisherman-style lamps, and a circular porthole window also contribute to the maritime atmosphere. 

The living room's bi-fold doors offer unbroken views of the water.
