This house sits on the banks of the river Loddon near Wargrave England but as you can see flooding sometimes causes it to sit directly IN the river. It was designed by the award-winning firm John Pardy Architects. Built as a one-off residence it is known as Hind House.
The house is designed with three modularized spaces each in a separate wing and each serving a different function: living spaces, sleeping spaces, and guest accommodations. It is built on columns to deal with the flooding from the river.
In the words of the architects "A dark, zinc-clad wing is pushed forward to receive an entrance staircase that slices up into an open timber lined hood." The house reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece home Fallingwater (especially this staircase leading down into the river).
