This is lake living, modern lodge style. The house is two simple, platonic forms - one resting on the other that shield your view of the lake from the street - pulled apart to create an aperture to the lake. The lake view is revealed once you enter the house. As you walk toward the lake, the house and the city is left behind to immerse you in the lake view. The main living space is a two story volume filled with light and the lake view. The approach to the site is to connect the house to the land with large stone boulders from the site and otherwise leave the lot wooded as is.
