Due to further urbanization, there is an urgent need for sustainable solutions for housing construction in combination with water storage in the water-rich Netherlands and other delta regions in the world.
Balance d'eau is currently developing a number of projects throughout The Netherlands. The homes have a small carbon footprint due to the use of solar panels for electricity and heat exchangers for heating and cooling. Also, these homes provide opportunities to build in areas that may not be suitable for traditional housing
Balance d'eau is the only developer that specializes in building floating construction onsite at any location. The water homes developed by us are very attractive and offer plenty of comfort, space and an “on water” living experience. Every day is a holiday for the homeowners!
Special and natural living in Nijstad: 16 floating homes and 12 durable homes
An unique location of 9 floating homes in the centre of Holland
Balance d'eau has developed a completely new construction system based on a watertight floating element of glass fiber reinforced composite. This building system with almost unlimited design freedom has been patented under patent number 2014970.
The lightweight prefab elements are assembled at the construction site into a watertight and solid building. This makes floating construction possible at any location, even in shallow or difficult-to-reach water.
