Lake House is a modestly sized custom home that balances wide ranging design priorities in a house that is simultaneously heroic and contemplative in its wooded environs.
With entry and bedrooms located on the ground floor, the second floor is reserved for shared spaces. A large roof deck anchors the more private end of the second floor on the East, while the West is defined by a folded roof line, timber curtain wall, and hung loft net that becomes the ideal place in which to lounge and observe the lake to the West and surrounding woods. The home is designed with triple paned glazing and exceeding Massachusetts energy codes, ensuring it will be a comfortable, lasting home.
