This proposal calls for the insertion of floating rooms to be located in the water at regular intervals along the waterfront. The rooms are accessed from land by means of small drawbridges which can be retracted from the water side, thereby removing the physical connection to the land and the city. The land edge wall contains tracks which allow the rooms to slide vertically with tidal fluctuations while forming a clear threshold between realms. In addiction, the wall element bends to form cover for the bench. With the creation of separation (or connection) by the inhabitants, the rooms present an unlimited range of uses for the public such as reading, sunbathing, lunching, talking, fishing, thinking, swimming... This proposal is an effort to mediate between the sublime scale of the natural landscape, the anonymous urban scale of the city, and the personal scale of the home by extending the borderline in a manner which facilitates human inhabitation.
