This home is locate in the region where building floating houses is a long time tradition – Lake Union, Seattle. Even though it is surrounded by other similar houses it has much more modern design and good look. The site is very small but architects managed to create great place as for living as for entertaining. The private space is located on float level while public ares have taken the second one. The entry, guest rooms, master’s bath and bedroom are located one the float level. There is also a private terrace accessible only from the master bedroom. All areas on the second floor are combined together to provide one large entertainment place. There is also an another terrace accessible through the sliding wall there.
The materials used in construction were choose to create the modern look and for their aesthetic qualities and low maintenance. An aluminum, yellow cedar and cement fiber panels are just some of them. [Vandeventer + Carlander Architects]
