Never Too Small • Documentary

The most important housing functions, cooking and eating, are situated directly behind the large glass façades with view of the lightboat and the canal.

The large interior-unit is realized in a subtle palette of birch wood and white Corian. The ‘diamond edge’-detailing, designed by Paul Timmer, gives the design its unique look.
