This first Hortus BOATanicus is one of the new products designed for Tiny Floats BV. Waterstudio had to look to the future for this house. Architect Koen Olthuis, the author of the project, signed a photo of this building on his Instagram with the words: “Grow your dinner on the roof”.
Undoubtedly, it is possible thanks to a house on water with a greenhouse created on the roof of the building.
This possibility is emphasized by the perverse name of the project, i.e. Hortusboatanicus, which was taken from Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, founded in 1638. Replacing the word “botanicus” with “boatanicus” aptly reflects the character of this unique house. Enjoy your meal!
