The Barge Isobel, Bristol

The conversion of a tar barge, (previously used as the Bristol Swan Sanctuary) into a one bedroom apartment.

The design was developed in conjunction with a boat builder who was able to apply local boat crafts to a project that would have been difficult to achieve using conventional land based construction techniques.

The design creates a series of living spaces enhanced by light reflecting off the dock through large windows set just above water level.
