A Modern and Compact Floating Home in Copenhagen

, , , , , By Catherine

Lisbeth Juul and Laust Nørgaard designed and built themselves their beautiful 860-square-foot floating home in Copenhagen. Every detail was carefully thought of to meet the couple’s needs, and based on their +25 years of experience living on water.

Wanting to “live more sustainably and maintenance-free”, as the residents explain, they created a minimal and modern home. The interior is also kept simple, clad with plywood panels, and with carefully selected furnishings. The black Vipp kitchen is a stunning focal point, and the numerous windows allow the light to flood the place.

“It’s like living in a summerhouse all year round. The light is absolutely the most life-giving thing about it,” says Juul.

Apparently, Juul begins each day by diving in the pristine waters, directly from her bedroom. Sounds pretty nice, right?

    Wow! I think this looks like a great place to be! I wonder what challenges comes with living entirely on the water, but for now, I’ll just imagine myself sitting on the terrace enjoying life.
