This project is an addition on a long and narrow lakeside lot. To address this, the massing is varied and the siding materials are articulated to reduce the scale of the elongated structure. The meandering path responds to the building and provides a more rich experience as one approaches the front door under the new trellis. Curves in the path are echoed in the entry hall, directing attention to the grand lake views. The curve motif is further strengthened in the counter, deck and landscaping design. All of the runoff from the house is diverted to one of three rain gardens. The kitchen takes advantage of the lake view while serving the clients' love of gourmet cooking and entertaining.
