Lime Studio DOC Floating House

We’re not going to lie, we don’t fare too well out on open water here at Coolector HQ but, if ever there was something that would compel us to live out on the water, it is this superb looking piece of design from Lime Studio called the DOC Floating House which, as the name more than alludes to, is a dwelling situated on water but it is the striking design features that are really appealing to us and we’re sure we’re not alone in loving its aesthetics.

Lime Studio are a Romania based design team and their DOC Floating House was completed in the tail end of 2016 to incredibly high standards and specifications and, as you can see, it delivers an understated, wonderfully minimalist means of living out on the water and for those that want a small but perfectly formed dwelling at one with nature, this would definitely be getting our vote.

Wonderful Water Locale

We must admit, there is a real sense of relaxation to be had when around water and, providing the choppiness is dialled right down, we’d definitely love an aquatic dwelling here at Coolector HQ and can’t think of any better candidates for the role than this brilliant looking DOC Floating House from Lime Studio. Cleverly designed to work within the space, this excellent structure is billed as a floating, multifunctional, mobile house and such is the level of versatility, you can really utilise the space how you see fit.

The Lime Studio DOC Floating House is overloaded with eye-catching aesthetics, most notably the heavy use of wood in the exterior cladding, and if you love understated, well thought out architecture, this is going to tick all of the right boxes for you too. The fluctuating water levels of the body of water on which it is situated means that the DOC Floating House has a clever trailer-esque component to its design which means that it can be relocated if necessary.

Very open plan in execution, the interior design of this glorious looking dwelling is the minimalist’s dream and, for those who love watersports, you’ll be able to get into your kayak right from the DOC Floating House’s very own pontoon. Clever use of space makes the structure feel much bigger than it is and it really is the perfect retreat for those hot summer months when there is no better place to be than by the water.

Minimalist Marvel

Understated is our vibe when it comes to design and interiors here at Coolector HQ and the Lime House DOC Floating House delivers on that front. Bold lines and contrasting materials provide the visual gravitas that you’ll want from a dwelling but it keeps things low-key and open plan throughout which makes sure this great piece of architecture works well for how you intend to use it.

Romanian design team, Lime Studio, have really shown off their creative talents with this aquatic piece of architecture and for those of you who have long held a desire to have a bolt-hole out on the water, you’ll be living in the lap of luxury if you are looking enough to get something as good as this.
