This boathouse is not only striking in its appearance, the building is also very durable. In the corner volume 72 solar panels are integrated. With these panels one can charge 1385x electric boats. The ‘electric boathouse’ is the first building in the Netherlands in which elec-tric boats and architecture are put together as one unity.

The neighbor continues: “It’s totally different than the standard industrial buildings you see here. It takes some getting used to, but it is special and nice. ” Save this picture!plan 01 The building houses a warehouse, with an extensive range of machinery for the (re) building of electric boats. An indoor exhibition space where the boats floats in water.And an office space. These three functions have been given their own character, both in morphology as in appearance. Save this picture!© Sebastiaan Jansen The black volume, which seems to float over a full glass exhibition space, created by interplay be-tween context and sustainability. The rotation angle in the plot can be read at the base, while the upper surface focuses the sun. This creates a sculptural architectural gesture with a nod in the front elevation. The roof which faces south, creates a surface that is suitable for processing PV cells. On the cor-ner volume 72 solar panels are fitted (about 91m ²). These panels provide approximately 11,072 kWh each year, which allows recharging 1385 electric boat. Besides solar panels, there are plenty of sustainable solutions applied. Rainwater is collected in a tank. With this water boats are washed and the toilets are flushed. For heating and cooling of the building a earth mouth linked heating heat pump (HCS) is installed. The cradle to cradle concept is reflected in the design and materialization of the building. In the assembly of the building, where possible, there are mechanical connections chosen. Furthermore, there are materials used in its purest form. Only a few materials have a finish in the form of paint-ing. But wood is wood and brick is brick.Project gallerySee allShow lessNew Church of Vaaler Proposal / CEBRAArticles’The Rink’ Pedestrian Bridge Proposal / Kamvari ArchitectsArticles Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/218348/electric-boat-house-in-the-netherlands-groosman-partners-architecten Clipboard Area: 700 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Electric Boat House in The Netherlands / Sebastiaan Jansen Architectuur The Netherlands Electric Boat House in The Netherlands / Sebastiaan Jansen ArchitectuurSave this projectSaveElectric Boat House in The Netherlands / Sebastiaan Jansen Architectuur 2011 “COPY” CopyHouses•Súdwest-Fryslân, The Netherlands “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/218348/electric-boat-house-in-the-netherlands-groosman-partners-architecten Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSebastiaan Jansen ArchitectuurOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesSúdwest-Fryslân3D ModelingThe NetherlandsPublished on March 21, 2012Cite: “Electric Boat House in The Netherlands / Sebastiaan Jansen Architectuur” 21 Mar 2012.
