Off the grid living but without all the woodland surrounding and basic home amenities, that’s what this unique home offers owners.

Moored at London’s St. Kathraine Docks, and designed by 3144 Architects, The Barge is a stylish alternative to city dwelling.

Originally created as a prototype string of barge developments, each element has been designed with a desire to create a home with all the benefits of living in a movable barge, but none of the inconveniences or compromises living on the water typically forces.
