floating cottage by mos

 

 

this cottage is located on a tiny island in lake huron in ontario, canada and was designed by mos. because the home is located in the middle of the lake, the designers created a steel platform complete with floating pontoons to allow the dwelling is rise and fall along with the tide. the home was also built in a peculiar way because of its unique location. instead of building it on site, the home was built on shore and towed out to its final spot and anchored in place. the home features a vernacular design that is contemporized with a cedar screen on parts of the façade.

  • Does anyone have some more details about this house? Floor plans and details of construction? I’m mainly interested to know more about the structure and utilities (especially regarding toilets and electricity ). Thanks!
