Architect Visit: Hood Canal Boathouse by Bosworth Hoedemaker

June 3, 2011

Seattle-based architects Bosworth Hoedemaker were tasked to take an uninspired concrete block boathouse along the shores of the Hood Canal and create a building that would serve as a hub for beach activities with space for overflow guests. Building restrictions required the architects to work within the existing footprint, so they opted to create a totally new structure from within. The result is an appealing beach-side boathouse/guest cottage; to see more of the firm’s work, go to Bosworth Hoedemaker.
