Fennell Residence- "The Floating House"

A very unique home in shape and form sits along the Willamette River in Portland Oregon. The family turned to Robert Oshatz who is known for his organic approach to architecture.
This summer retreat house has an area of 2,364 sq. ft. and resembles the contours and ripples of water. Curved and intricately glued laminated wood beams make up this house’s organic form.
