The Floating Home in Seattle is an innovative prefabricated residence that was constructed in a nearby shipping yard before being towed to its permanent place in Lake Union. Designed by E Cobb Architects, the Floating Home is similar to other prefabricated floating home concepts that have popped up in London and other coastal cities.

The Floating Home's Lake Union location is ideal, given the lake's central position within Seattle, offering unparalleled views and a lifestyle that is perfectly inline with the laidback Pacific Northwest style. Created for a couple who had decided to downsize after their children left for university, the Floating Home is a unique exercise in urban sensibility.

Boasting room for the storage of kayaks and a guestroom, the Floating Home in Seattle is the perfect inspiration for a trip to Washington or Amsterdam.
