Stylish Lobster Boat Residence in Portage Bay in Seattle

Stylish Lobster Boat Residence in Portage Bay in Seattle

Portage Bay, Seattle, is famous for its dense urban shoreline site and their population issues. That is what Chadbourne + Doss Architects had to deal with when they refurbishing this waterfront property into a 2380 square foot condominium. At a place where the community bond means everything, a condominium with 4 detached residences and 2 houseboats that share a waterfront access, parking utilities and a vegetable garden sounds a lot more rational. To preserve the Lobster Boat Residence’s economical value, the designer had to choose low costs and environmental friendly materials to be combined with the existing original boat structure leaving no unnecessary wasted space. We love it!
