The Lake House

Washington
This project page was created by community member Steelhead Architecture

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.
