The Boat House 


This site is situtated in the Lake District. The existing small boat house was built from local stone. DMD have designed an extension to the boat house derived from its local context.

The extension opens itself up to the lake views at the front and side. The main living space is of a double height and its floor level is sunken down from that of the kitchen.

Bio fold doors allows the outside to flow in and a balcony at the top of the spiral staircase on the first floor level overlooks the double height living space below

Externally a new decked area leads down to the lake shore where a new timber stand has been erected as a mooring point for small fishing boats.
