floating house design

New York based studio MOS Architects designed the Floating House located in an island on Lake Huron, in Ontario, Canada.

Specifically planned to adapt to Lake Huron’s drastic water level changes the house floats atop a structure of steel pontoons, allowing it to fluctuate along with the lake. Completed in 2005.
