Lake House

The Lake House is a house and retreat for a young family in the woods of Wilkes County, North Carolina. The property occupies a steep incline through a natural clearing and down to the shores of a small inlet on a lake. The house takes advantage of this clearing in the woods by placing itself directly in the middle of it and mid-slope, so the experience from within can vary from lofty canopy to woodland edge, from controlled landscape to natural forest density. The singular volume, clad in naturally weathering cypress, is then carved and formed to create multiple physical arrangements of people to place.
