As in a painting, a house has created not only to float on water but in a dreamlike atmosphere and relaxing. Work of the popular French design brothers, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Floating House is the national contemporary art center for publication CNEAI (Centre National de l’Estampa et de l’Art Imprime).
Established in 2002 following a public office and completed in 2006, this habitable barge has been realized in collaboration with architects Jean-Marie Finot and Denis Daversin. The simple lines of the structure are a practical response, and at the same time poetic, bare-bones budget set for this project.
Moored on an island in Chatou known as the Impressionists, the Floating House is swelling rhythms of the waves in silence on the Seine.
The light entering the house through the two large windows cut into the wood of the main room.
And the impressions has created by the studio also view the picture landscape as told by Auguste Renoir in his oil painting “Déjeuner des canotiers” (1881), reflected on the river: a fairy tale atmosphere favoring inspiration and contemplation.
In a total area of 100 square meters (of which 23 are used to terrace), the life and work are held, interweave, involve theory along a space never defined, closed, broken. A layer of aluminum covering the wooden frame and protects the house rectangular (23mx5m).
From large flower pots placed on the terraces starts climbing that invade the walls and roof of the boat in the original project have been designed to completely cover the structure, creating integration and greater intimacy with the landscape for those who live the Floating House.
The Floating House was conceived as a reproducible object that can be redesigned with different sizes and surfaces.
