Fatkin was asked to design a contemporary new concrete-hulled houseboat providing 250m² of accommodation and live-work space on the River Thames in central London.

The lower deck provides an open-plan office space for the client’s business and staff team, including WCs, meeting room and kitchenette, with the upper deck providing flexible live-work space, reception and meeting areas. The roof terrace provides space for a container garden, outdoor recreation and socialising.

Fatkin was involved in the design of the project from concept through to completion, with fabrication of the concrete hull and steel frame taking place in the Netherlands before the boat was shipped to east London for fit-out.
