The Houseboat H is a floating dwelling that is the result of an innovative and sustainable houseboat design, envisioned by architect Michelle Lanker and her husband Bill Bloxom, that is unabashedly inspired by principles of eco-friendly design.

Situated on Lake Union in Seattle, the Houseboat H is easily noticeable thanks to its curved roof and cement fiber cladding. However, the most unique feature of this houseboat design is located under water, specifically on its underside, where an array of planters invites fish to enjoy their own habitat. The planters are made from recycled plastic, and allow marine plants to flourish, inviting fish to feed on them.

Not only does this houseboat make use of recyclable materials, it also takes a proactive approach to blending in with the marine life beneath it, making it a true example of environmentally respectful floating home design.
