Situated on the water’s edge this spectacular property is a home of two halves.

The house is distinguished by a simple arrangement of gabled forms which appear to stand alone, but are connected by a flat floating roof. The contrasting use of black and white adds to the sculptural feel, with the dark roofing product being carried down the exterior walls providing texture and contrast to the smooth plaster finish.

Our design approach was ‘less is more’ resulting in a clean uninterrupted finish. From the road the home appears private, and formal, yet the solidity of the stone helps ground the house to the site. In contrast the lake side is open, inviting, and relaxed. The raised infinity edge terrace gives the illusion that you’re floating on the water.
