Eight floating homes Lelystad

The newest type of residence in Lelystad is a floating home. On the very edge of Warande, a new district in the southern part of the city, a 'floating residential district' with 8 energy-efficient, low-maintenance and sustainable floating homes was realised in Torenvalktocht. The floating houses were built by a collective private principal ('collectief particulier opdrachtgeverschap' or CPO). The body of water was enlarged to become a beautiful, spacious bowl. 

Built by a collective private principal

The floating homes were commissioned by a collective private principal. The residences on the water were designed by Amsterdam-based Attika Architecten and built at the site of ABC Arkenbouw in Urk. A number of residents participated in the building work.

Facts & figures

The residences are 14.5m to 18m long and are in full compliance with Dutch building regulations. The average floor area is about 171 m2 and the volume an ample 493m3. The floating homes weigh about 150 tons. 

It goes without saying that these residences are extremely sustainable and energy-efficient, and also certified as safe homes by the police department (Politie Keurmerk Veilig Wonen).
