Having started as an idea for a cabin that floats on water ever so gently the ended up as a cabin on stilts that still allows its owner to enjoy live on a lake without breaking the local building codes.
As changing colors of fall and the falling leaves shape the landscape around us we all inevitable start thinking about the chilly winter ahead and even the many delights of Holiday Season.
A rough terrain and undulating landscape do not stop the architects from shaping a dramatic vacation home that the whole family can enjoy. An open living area along with kitchen and dining are set at the rear of the property and towards the glass façade while the front of the house holds the more private bedrooms. A dream escape in every sense of the word!
The living area is like an open pavilion with the rear deck pool area and the view beyond becoming a part of the experience at the lake house. The double height living area is draped in a neutral color palette and natural stone finishes ensure that the focus remains firmly on the scenery outdoors.
The inquisitive cats can meander through the flowing ledge and access different vantage points and trap doors that allow them to navigate through the top two levels of the home.
A personal workspace on an elevated platform in the home office sits directly below a skylight and provides a calm and unique work area that seems detached from the rest of the house.
