The IJburg neighbourhood is the latest district of Amsterdam built over a number of artificial islands which have been raised from the IJmeer lake. The ambitious project is still under construction, but more than 20,000 people have already moved in. When complete, the neighbourhood will have 18,000 homes for 45,000 residents as well as schools, shops, leisure centers, restaurants, and beachs. One of its many innovative housing projects is taking place in Waterbuurt or Water District.

Waterbuurt is part of the IJburg neighbourhood and is located on ‘Steigereiland’ (Jetty Island) which forms IJburg’s main access route via the Enneus Heerma Bridge. The neighbourhood has 75 (93, according to Financial Times) individual floating houses moored around slender jetties like house boats.
