Floating Cedar House On The Side Of Lake Huron

The two-story building was named a Floating House by MOS Architects and offers a summer residence on the Canadian side of Lake Huron. Thanks to its pontoon base, the house adapts to the changing water levels of the lake, which rise and fall all year round. The outside of the building is covered with an umbrella made of cedar boards. The living rooms are all on the level above. The entrance leads directly into the kitchen, which acts as the main artery of the house. The living room and bedroom occupy the large spaces at either end, while an office, bathroom and storage room fit in between. Wood was used throughout the interior for floors, ceilings, furniture and joinery.
