What Houzz contributors are saying:
The structure is light (the architects refer to it as a water skater), delicately perched on the water’s surface. The architects have employed a steel frame for its structural rigidity and delicate presence, recalling simple dock structures. The screened panels on the northern and eastern sides of the living space on the upper level pivot to create an impromptu diving platform. When they’re lifted, the already airy structure seems to disappear into the tree line.
