Floating Home III
Bercy Chen Boathouse
Bercy Chen Studio equipped this beautiful Texas boathouse with a built-in waterfall and 360-
degree views of Lake Austin and the surrounding hills of the nearby Canyonlands Preserve. The
second level offers shade for the boat slip below, and a beach area allows children to play
below the waterfall. A house for all ages!
A Washington State couple called on BC&J Architects to transform their 400-square-foot
boathouse into a hub for family beach activities. A bevy of glass windows floods the space with
light and bay views, and at high tide, water laps peacefully below the structure.
