LAKE UNION FLOATING HOME II | SEATTLE, WA

Like most of Seattle's floating homes, this house started as a humble shack on a raft of old growth logs in the 1920's. This latest change was our third project for the client and included an extensive remodel of the entire interior, the addition of a second level, new exterior cladding, and new finishes throughout.

The completed design interlocks old and new elements to reflect the quirky, ad hoc quality of the moorage community, while nonetheless taking care to ensure the composition is visually balanced and well proportioned. The result is a cozy, light-filled home that is equally suited for winter dinners with friends, summer dips in the lake, and watching holiday fireworks.
