A beautiful lakeside lot provided the ideal setting for an expansive new weekend residence for an ever-expanding family. The client asked that the house appear to take its design cues from early twentieth-century country house architecture.  An important design mandate was to situate the house to capture both the distant deep water views as well as the meandering shoreline while maintaining a comfortable physical convenience to the lake and boathouse. It was mutually agreed that the house would be built using indigenous materials where possible. The interiors would be light-filled, quite open in plan, yet display a meaningful delineation of spaces by the use of beams and varying ceiling heights (according to the hierarchy of rooms). Interesting lines of sight would be a critical element in the plan arrangement. “There is a relatedness, but different arrangements were chosen to help give particular spaces distinction”
