Dyna - Portage BayIndustrial Bathroom, Seattle
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.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
It’s only fitting that this piece of cedar in this floating house in Seattle serves as a unique shower bench, because it was part of an old log float. As it had floated on the water for many years before, the client decided sealing it wasn’t necessary. See the rest of this floating houseTiles: BSP, Pental; Raindance 240 Air Showerhead: Hansgrohe
Skylights bring natural light into the bathroom. In this deep shower, an old part of the cedar log float that wasn't needed now serves as a shower bench. Since it had floated on the water for many years and survived just fine, the client opted not to seal it. Tiles: BSP, Pental; showerhead: Raindance 240 Air Showerhead, Hansgrohe
