University of Washington Coaches Boat House
This facility houses boats for the University of Washington's rowing
program. It is built on wood pilings over Lake Washington and is
accessed by a bridge ramp. The building design recalls the live-aboard
barges of northern Europe. The low vault also stays within the 16'
height limitation established for the Lake Washington shoreline
The boathouse is located in an environmentally sensitive area adjacent
to wetlands, and Miller Hull with Kramer, Chin & Mayo worked closely
with the City of Seattle and the Army Corps of Engineers during
the early stages of planning to ensure minimal disruption to the
site and surrounding habitat.
The Boat House is a small part of the University of Washington Shoreline
