Our book ‘Amphibious Housing in the Netherlands’ was published in January 2011. It is the result of a collaborative effort between Defacto and the SEV foundation and gives an overview of the current state-of-the-art of amphibious housing solutions in the Netherlands. The book discusses several locations and motives, and distinguishes several different types of amphibious houses. Using realized projects as examples, it demonstrates how different tools can be applied in the design of both individual amphibious houses and neighborhoods.
