The Dusky Parakeet is a bright and modern houseboat currently moored in London's St. Katharine Docks. Award-winning London–based firm 31/44 Architects outfitted the brand-new 60' x 12' wide beam canal boat with bespoke interiors that give off a Scandinavian vibe.
The handmade joinery and flooring are crafted from Douglas fir, charcoal gray Valchromat, and tulipwood. The interior is open and uncluttered, and storage is cleverly tucked away beneath the staircase and under the benches.
As the listing so perfectly states, "It would be impossible to find an apartment of this caliber, in this location, at this affordable price, but Dusky Parakeet manages to achieve all three. She would make a perfect pied-à-terre, moveable home, or office."
