Floating Home II

 Steeltec37 on the Lake

A vacation rental in the Lusatian lake district of Germany, Steeltec37’s design appropriately

resembles an inflated sail. With no trees to offer shade and a strong reflection off the water’s

surface, sliding slatted screens mitigate the abundance of light that floods this floating home. A

sturdy steel skeleton withstands constant exposure to the elements.

 Muskoka Floating Cabin

In a renovation of an existing boathouse in Ontario, Canada, architect Christopher Simmonds

took equal advantage of lake vistas and the tree-filled shoreline. Rustic materials applied to the

geometric exterior create a structure that fits in with its natural surroundings. The floors and

detailing make use of the water-friendly properties of ipe wood to give the house the feel of a

floating cabin.
