A cluster of eight houses forms a peninsula in the water. Its character is wholly determined by its waterside location. The superstructure is shaped like a boat; instead of a garden each house has a large deck-like terrace, and there are places where the young people can park their own boats. 4 houses, 4-under-one-roof, as it were, form a gatehouse, each one equal with respect to location and view. Each house with its three storeys offers a highly flexible layout. Apart from the traditional layout with separate rooms, everything can be left open which makes for enormous spatiality, while the house lends itself to individual solutions. All 3 floors can be used as the living area, while the ground floor, most of which is on the water, can be used for sleeping. The ground floor can also be fitted out as a completely separate surgery and/or office space. The large partially covered terraces are not overlooked and therefore provide a high degree of privacy (text from architect's website).
