Floating Home V

Willamette River House

The tiniest home on this list at just 433 square feet, this Portland, Oregon, river house, designed

by Studio Hamlet Architects, had to contend with a few marina ordinances and fire restrictions.

But every cloud has a silver lining: The requirement for access from all sides yielded a spacious

wrap-around deck. The corrugated rooftop, however, was selected for looks alone—it echoes

the rippling water below.


Both water- and eco-friendly, the Schwimmhausboot by the German design firm Confused-

Direction sits landside with zero emissions. Made from salvaged 250-year-old larch wood, this

floating home is equipped with a patch of green roof—perhaps for those moments when the

homeowners find themselves missing dry land.
