The home is built in two parts: on the left is where the primary residents live. On the right, a second smaller building stores boats and other recreational gear on the ground floor and features a guest suite on the second floor. "The house’s proximity to the water encourages recreational swimming, boating and exploring," says Haggis.
The home's decks and open interiors are ideal for hosting. Additionally, they enable ample cross-ventilation in summer. The fireplace is a Scan DSA 5 from Krog, Iversen & Co., the sofa is a EQ3 Morten Sectional, and the ARC floor lamp is from Structube.
In winter months, the concrete floors act a thermal mass, absorbing the sunlight and slowly radiating warmth day and night. Bertoia Bar Stools from Knoll flank the island, which is raw edge maple. The backsplash is Little Diamond tiles in turquoise from Heath Ceramics. Claylight pendants from Lightexture hang overhead and the rangehood is from GE.
The second floor landing—which features Modway Waverunner chair and ottoman—makes full use of the double-height glazed facade. As Haggis puts it, the home's "architecture and siting offer a variety of breathtaking broad and framed views of the river, embankment and dynamic landscape."
