On this house you not only can view the lake’s scenery but you really stand above it! This house has a vernacular house typology and become an “island” on this lake. The fabrication and construction is a challenge because its site location that right on the lake. This house floats atop a structure of steel pontoons to adapt it to the water levels of the lake. To built this house they Lake Huron as a waterway, send the materials to the contractor’s fabrication shop that located on the lake shore, built the house there, transport it about 80 km to the site and anchor it. Cedar wood used as the construction, encloses the interior living space and exterior space. A “rainscreen” used to shelter interior space, filter the sunlight, reducing wind load and heat gain, while give a singular character to the exterior. This Floating House designed by MOS Architects.
