A Dutch Barge conversion of the Meprise from empty hold to successful Bed&Breakfast
‘Captain’s Place’ in the Eastern Docklands of Amsterdam.
The owner of the Meprise wanted to convert the hold of his Fresian Barge into a cosy Bed&Breakfast and asked us to design a conversion which would allow for 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a large live-in kitchen and a secret conservatory with a fireplace BBQ and sliding roof. Harbourhome collaborated with Abbink X Co on the logistics and spatial setup for this barge with separate entrances to both B&B Captain’s Place and the owner’s own home in the rear of the ship. The owner himself took on the refurbishment and styling of the interior based on his vast experience in chartering tourists in the Aegean sea.
