This modern design boat house is located on Storm Bay in western Ontario.

The ‘Guertin Boat Port’ is a remarkably designed, open-air floating dock which is built over two levels and incorporates an attractively positioned fixed boardwalk.  This project appears to have been designed purely for the client’s recreational enjoyment. The modern design boat house is constructed chiefly from reflective surfaces, light reflected by the rippling lake surface is manipulated and scattered to create a dynamic visual experience.  The materials chosen for this project are all hard wearing industrial metals, which gives this modern design boat house an industrialized aesthetic.  Due to the windy nature of the location, weather shields are necessary to provide some shelter, however these are also perforated to prevent over bombardment by the elements.  The modern design boat house has a fabulous viewing platform on its upper storey where uninterrupted views of the lake and the shoreline can be freely enjoyed

The motor boat docking area and the comfortably appointed viewing deck are reached by a functional yet dramatic aluminum plank boardwalk which follows the pattern of the rocky shoreline.  To accommodate for the natural movement of the water and extremes of the seasonal ‘freezing and thawing’ cycles the structure of the modern design boat house has been cleverly engineered with, flexible hinged joints.

The main material composition of the modern design boat house comprises cold-formed steel C-channels, with pressure treated supports for strength and a combination decking. The upper viewing deck has lowered boundaries to keep the lake view absolutely unhindered by distracting architectural elements

This modern design boat house illustrates the innovative nature of ‘5468796 Architecture Inc.’ designs as well as their flexibility in being able to adapt their visions to suit all manner of projects, placing their clients’ wishes firmly at the centre of the design process.
