Lake Iosco House in New Jersey

New Zealand transplant Debbie Gibbs and her young sun retreat from their New York city life to their custom prefab home in Lake Iosco, New Jersey. After seeing the Dwell Home competition designed by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz of Resolution: 4 Architecture, Gibbs contacted the pair to design a home where the line between indoors and out would blur. Working from a list of preferred materials and components that the architects could source easily, the result was a flowing, expansive breath of space. “The house’s narrow footprint works for us in terms of maximum exposure to the lake,” says Gibbs (shown here with son Blake and dog Max on the shore of Lake Iosco). "The old house was like a cave, and I wanted this house to be the opposite: a pavilion where you didn’t feel enclosed at all." Check out more of this lakeside prefab here.
