Living on the border between water and land, whereby the boat plays a central role. The weekend getaway is equipped with solar cells that provide the necessary energy that is needed in daily life. Surface water is put through a particular system and is purified for use as drinking water.

The property is situated in Nederhorst den Berg bordering the Mirror Lake (Spiegelplas). The property is constructed from a timber skeleton and stands partially in the water and partially on land. The shape of the roof stimulates the natural ventilation. A raise-able fence is used to keep unwanted visitors from entering.
