Dyna - Portage BayIndustrial Staircase, 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.

Cable rails and metal steps continue the industrial vibe outside. Untreated cedar creates a rain screen, a must in Seattle's climate. The wood also adds warmth and contrast to the metal and glass.

siding stairs- Corrugated siding does come in a rusty color, if you're interested in that. IT would coordinate with the wood. It's not actually rusted though- it's a coating RDB
