Floating Haarlem Shuffle Villa Offers A Relaxed Living In A Dynamic and Bright Environment

by in Architecture

The floating ‘Haarlem Shuffle’ Villa completed by Van Ommeren Architecten is located on the Spaarne river, close to the historic city center of Haarlem, NL. The open living spaces of this house play with the perception around the river and the relationship of the floating house with the city of Haarlem.

The ark gets its expression by a strong orthogonal composition of open and closed facade elements. The large vide near the southwest windows opens up the floor for light to reach the lower music and sleeping spaces.

The strong textured facade bordered with a slim aluminum roof trim is preferred instead the commonly used wood cladding. After the structural completion in 2015, the owner of the house spent another three years on the interior build finalizing all of his detail wishes.

Two heat pumps and a roof filled with solar panels guarantee an efficient, comfortable and energy neutral living. There is no gas connection on board. The sustainable and high-end detailing makes this floating villa stand out from the other houseboats.

Where the Spaarne makes his overture to Haarlem there is a lovely place to live; it means a relaxed living in a dynamic and bright environment; designed in a rhythmic but playful whole: the Haarlem shuffle.
