  • The Lake House is perched along the shores of Vancouver Lake just across the Washington border from Portland. The site is quite isolated on a peninsula and surrounded by wooded banks and water. The design composition of floating roof planes and a central double height volume result in a simple 'form' building. Wall, roof and window planes intersect without expressing the connections or directly expressing the structure. The result is a very clean and simple intersecting geometry - a modern sculpture set in the natural setting.
