Dutch landscape is currently highlighted by a new way of living on the water such as floating and amphibious houses to adapt to a sea level rise and floods. Ijburg in Amsterdam is one of the examples, building up 55 pile and floating houses on a surface water reservoir. In Gouden Kurst, Maasbommel another innovative approach was taken in 1998; twenty amphibious housing that stood on the lakeside were constructed, these houses were designed in order to float during high water. This paper is aimed at analyzing and describing the innovative planning and design approach that have been implemented in these two projects. Particular issues will be raised on 1) the background of the project especially relates to urban design and planning; 2) its spatial pattern (connection with land and water); 3) building design and structure (buoyancy, materials, and utilities); as well as 4) construction and delivery. Data were collected through field observations and literature studies. Maps, plan, section, and photos will be used as a major method to analize and illustrate the design and concept. Output of this study is intended to inform the cities and regions in Indonesia that face the same problem with floods, yet have a strong connection with water for years. Banjarmasin is one of the examples, it is well-known for a city of a thousand rivers and tradition living on water in floating houses (Rumah Lanting), however, there has been no new approaches taken to develop Lanting into a modern and sustainable lifestyle living.
