Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: Associated Architects

Associated Architects’ second ten-year Masterplan for King’s Worcester included rebuilding the Boathouse, which was previously a small and unsightly 1950s building.  The site is a focal point in the Masterplan, Conservation Area and in the Worcester City Council/SustransWorcester Riverside project.On the line of the old city defences, it is at the edge of the historic city core which has a rich history including Norman and medieval archaeology.  The Masterplan proposal to create a striking modern building was welcomed by Worcester City Council planners.

Boat’s House at Millstätter Lake in Carinthia, Austria by MHM architects

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: MHM architects

The boathouse was built as a solitary building at the Seebodner lakeside of the Millstätter lake in Carinthia. The location of the construction is characterized by the intersection line between water and soil, directly at the foot a precipitous slope in which also the remaining buildings of the property complex are situated. Due to their elevated position, those houses have an extensive view at the south and the west façade of the boathouse.

Cliff House in Gig Harbor, Washington by Scott Allen Architecture

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Scott Allen Architecture

Tucked against the wall of a natural cliff and right on the water’s edge in Gig Harbor, Washington, this project answered the unique challenges of its site. The footprint for the new structure replaces an old guest house and boathouse, and was limited in its size by an agreement through a regulatory process.

Muskoka Boathouse in Ontario, Canada by Christopher Simmonds Architect Inc.

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

This project for the renovation of an existing boathouse and new 600 sq.ft. second storey guest suite is located in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario.  Situated at the end of a narrow bay, the design of the new boathouse mediates between extended views out to the wide vista of the distant lake and the immediacy of the enclosed forested shoreline of the bay.  The design provides a lens for these varied views as well as a sheltering foil to the open lake breezes and water traffic.  The project called for the renovation of an existing two slip boathouse and the addition of a second storey guest suite and roof terrace.

Naust Paa Aure in More og Romsdal, Norway by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Friday, October 28th, 2011

The boathouse is a cultural and historical hallmark of Norways coastal regions, where fishing used to be the primary profession. They have traditionally been used for storing boats and fishing gear, but today many of them are being converted for recreational summer use. This particular boathouse is located on the outermost reaches of the Moere-coast, and it hails from the middle of the eighteenth century. It was in such a bad state that the owner decided to tear it down and build it anew. The simplicity of the old building, its good placement and honest use of materials would become key sources of inspiration for the design of the new building. Great emphasis was placed on the main construction, the gates of the gable wall and the adaptable long facade.
