salisbury school boathouse

Set on Lake Washinee in Salisbury, Connecticut, OMR designed a new two story boathouse for the Salisbury School to replace an existing metal structure on its original footprint. OMR collaborated with a local timber frame company to create a building that is simple, elegant, and warm; all for a modest budget.

Looking out across the lake to the Berkshire Mountains beyond, the new post and beam timber structure houses canoes and crewing shells in three bays below the light filled mezzanine above. The approach to the boathouse, down a serpentine tree lined access road, engages the onlooker and allows the building to feel tucked into its natural setting.
