Lobster Boat Residence

The modern Family Room designed by chadbourne + doss architects is a composition of wood and steel. The steel stairs lead to a small Roof Deck. The large picture window provides a framed view of passing marine traffic.

Hi. The steps are made of bent steel plate. The finish is a blackening agent with wax. Since this photo solid walnut has been added to the tops of the steps. Thanks for your interest.

One end of the room is kids play space, one end is adult relaxing space. Couch, rug and lamp, then a chair with it's own lamp facing the couch.
