Shingle Style Family Vacation Retreat House

Shingle style houses found in New England’s seaside resorts at the turn of the century inspired the design of this family vacation retreat. The house is overlooking a lake and is made of stone and wood cladding. Thanks to that and asymmetrical lines of its roof and walls blends naturally into the landscape. From a dramatic two-story dining room at its center, the plan curves gently toward the lake, affording light and panoramic views of the water to both wings of the home. As the exterior as the interior they both done with touches of luxury. In a playful touch, a blue light in the roof-top cupola has become a nighttime landmark for residents of the lake.
