LAKE HOUSE

type: single family
location: vermont
status: completed 2004

Overlooking a lake just fifteen minutes from two Vermont ski resorts, this vacation home is situated perfectly for summer and winter recreation. The south-sloping site presented an opportunity for passive solar orientation, allowing large expanses of glass facing the water. During the winter, the warmth of the sun reaches deeply into the house, while the heat of the summer sun is blocked by the deep roof overhangs. The natural douglas fir siding and log frame blend harmoniously with the wooded surroundings. Inside, a semi-professional kitchen, five bedrooms, a screened porch, and two large living rooms provide cozy spaces for family.
