The strong lines and simple gable forms of an existing farm building on the site inform the aesthetics of this waterfront home. Durable materials such as board and batten siding, brick chimneys and metal roofing emphasize its homey simplicity and graceful strength.
The building integrates seamlessly into its waterfront site by a series of terraces and canopied roofs. Visitors experience this by traveling an entry path that creates a sequence of spaces, beginning from the garages, cascading down to the entry vestibule, and then moving alongside the main living areas down to the lakefront dock. Rooms in the home eddy off this main path. The final result is a grounded home of strong character that embraces the land, the lake, and the views.
