Floating Home, Sausalito

Project Details: Floating Home

Total Square Footage: 1,450 sq. ft.
 
This new floating home is in Sausalito, California. A raised ceiling in the living room and floor to ceiling windows visually expand the small space. Smaller windows set in rhythmic grids around the house all sunlight dappling off the water to create visual rhythms throughout the interior as the sun shifts positions. The windows open up views of the bay and fog slipping down the hillsides of Sausalito. The owner is an avid sailor, and so curved roof planes hint to wind filled sails of boats cruising by and repurposed hardwood floors tell of arcs of yesteryear.
