    Situated on the west side of Lake George, this design reimagines the footprint of an existing seasonal one story camp with influences from both Japanese and regional Adirondack styles. This house is pursuing LEED Silver certification.

    This sustainable retreat demonstrates that ecological responsibility as a design motivation can actually enhance a project’s elegance, flexibility, and character.

    The couple with young children asked us to design a home that would utilize essentially the same footprint as the seasonal one story camp that has occupied the property since the 1950’s. The owner’s admiration for Japanese Architecture and a simple open plan guided the design team to create a blend of western architectural influences with regional influences of the northeast.

    Exterior siding is a combination of locally milled douglas-fir timbers, eastern white bark-on cedar planks, poplar bark shakes and New Baltimore Stone which was quarried close to the project site.

    Knowing that the family will gather at the home mostly on the weekends where the number of visitors could also increase, the plan utilized a large screened porch and deck that allows the main living space to expand and open onto these spaces through a series of 8’ high sliding glass doors.
