1.The Fennell Residence — Portland, Oregon
This houseboat captures your attention in the first sight itself. The houseboat sitting on the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, the Fennell Residence features a clever use of glulam timber beams which give it a cozy, warm interior. The living and dining rooms are set facing the river, adorned with glass windows that let you witness a perfect sunset. It also has a lofted master bedroom that sits above the study, looking over the living room and farther into the river. The architect has perfectly blended the houseboat’s spatial differentiation with designs so perfect; they give it an incredibly fine curvilinear form making the houseboat a piece of wonderful artwork.
