Designs Northwest Architects completed a floating home on Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. The residence hardly resembles typical contemporary American architecture, but rather seems to pay tribute to industrial buildings. All in all, its appearance is charming and the home makes a lovely contrast with the water. Especially designed for a retired couple with a passion for art, the structure has a total area of 1200 square feet and blends traditional decorating elements with the comfort of modern living. The owners’ love for water was one of the most important factors to consider when planning this crib. Every room features generous windows that allow unobstructed views of Lake Union and the yachts nearby. The interiors are warm and inviting, due to various wooden decorative features and art works spread throughout. With great views of downtown Seattle, the rooftop deck is the perfect place to contemplate on the urban racket, from a very privileged and “safe” spot.
