The client vision was to create an exquisitely detailed summer residence that will evolve over time into a year round home. Waterfront views were emphasized with a wall of glass tilted to the lake to emphasize movement and limit overview from the adjacent public path.
Although bounded by neighbors, all sides of the cottage were carefully planned to create interest and articulate the journey of the water’s edge. The roadside elevation also creates movement with the wood faced wave on the upper wall.
A rooftop garden over the entire cottage creates a private gathering space with extended views through the trees and down the lake.
