An exemplary and idyllic living space can only be realized through the seamless integration of "people, light, and greenery". The passage of time and the fleeting nature of light, akin to flowing water, make it difficult to hold onto beautiful moments and cherish them for a long time. To overcome this challenge, the project is thoughtfully designed as a long, deep, and stable boat. The boat is constructed in such a way that the residents can relish the natural light and breeze, as if they were living on the waterfront. The boat's design ensures that the residents experience a comfortable and peaceful life, with ample greenery, light, and air. The boat's interior is designed with exceptional attention to detail, and every corner is designed with the aim of providing the residents with a luxurious and serene living space. The residents can enjoy the beautiful moments of their life while living in this space and create unforgettable memories.

The interior of the cabin is a true marvel of design, where every detail has been meticulously crafted to create an immersive and inviting space. The use of dark brown solid wood, light brown stained wood veneer, and gray travertine is not only visually stunning but also tactically pleasing, with each texture complementing the others to create a cohesive and harmonious environment. The handmade fabric furniture is not just functional but also adds a touch of warmth and coziness to the space, making it feel like a true home away from home. The rounded curved wall edges and curved ceiling design are not just decorative features but also serve a functional purpose, creating a sense of flow and continuity throughout the space.

The large windows and glass tiles are a standout feature of the cabin, letting in plenty of natural light and creating a feeling of openness and airiness. This not only makes the space feel larger but also creates a stunning visual effect of sparkling and changing light and shadow that is truly mesmerizing.
