Dyna - Portage Bay

Clean and simple define this 1200 square foot Portage Bay floating home. After living on the water for 10 years, the owner was familiar with the area’s history and concerned with environmental issues. With that in mind, she worked with Architect Ryan Mankoski of Ninebark Studios and Dyna to create a functional dwelling that honored its surroundings. The original 19th century log float was maintained as the foundation for the new home and some of the historic logs were salvaged and custom milled to create the distinctive interior wood paneling. The atrium space celebrates light and water with open and connected kitchen, living and dining areas. The bedroom, office and bathroom have a more intimate feel, like a waterside retreat. The rooftop and water-level decks extend and maximize the main living space. The materials for the home’s exterior include a mixture of structural steel and glass, and salvaged cedar blended with Cor ten steel panels. Locally milled reclaimed untreated cedar creates an environmentally sound rain and privacy screen.

The cabinet base width from end to end which includes the paneled refrigerator is 16' 7-1/2". I hope that helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Ravishing Reds, Pinks and Purples for Fall 2012
As an appetite-stimulating color, red is a great hue for kitchen cabinets. The remaining materials and furnishings here are a nice mix of light and dark neutral colors, creating pleasing balance with this intense red.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Cooking With Color: When to Use Red in the Kitchen
I love the eye-catching red cabinetry in this fetching open-plan kitchen. If you opt for a bold hue on your base cabinets, consider using a neutral hue for your upper cabinets or installing open shelving. Either move will break up the red and keep it from becoming overwhelming.Tell us: Have you used red in your kitchen? Post a photo and share details in the Comments section below!
Often a single-wall kitchen is used for the efficiency of space within the whole house, rather than just for the efficiency of the kitchen. This houseboat is a good example of a home where the footprint of the kitchen needed to be minimized. Like the previous example, it is a handsome design that fits well on one side of the living space.Also, this layout illustrates one change since the days of the middle of the 20th century, when the work triangle was being developed: The oven and stove are not a single appliance. Here a double oven sits next to the refrigerator at right, while the stove is located between the refrigerator and the sink on the far left.
The design team took some inspiration from The Farnsworth House and used a central core to hold the kitchen, bathroom and closets, and to divide the main living space from the bedroom. A strict color palette throughout the home highlights the beauty in the materials' textures and the contrasts.Sofa: Theater sofa, Design Within Reach; dining table: client's own
