City of Kenmore Boathouse

Westerbeck architecture was hired as the architect to design a concept for a boathouse in the city of Kenmore’s Rhododendron Park. While the budget is modest and it will simply be a 2,000 SF shell, we worked within the affordable vocabulary of wood frame construction, off the shelf trusses, corrugated metal panels, cement board and multi-wall polycarbonate glazing to design something more special than the utility shed that was planned for this spot. The boathouse’s future is uncertain, but we certainly hope funding is found to make this a reality for the Kenmore Community.
