Lake Jewel

    next image

  This project was one in which we were asked to be involved in the smaller scale details, and the attention to these details is part of what makes this cabin such a "jewel."
  This collection of images is primarily exterior. The top left shows how a change in siding style and color breaks down the scale of the cabin, keeping it diminutive instead of overbearing on its site. The green band, aligning with the window heads, wraps the house and marks the line between these two. The focal point of the house, both interior and exterior, is the large bank of windows that wraps the corner looking toward the lake. At this corner, the transom breaks through the band, accentuating the prominence of this feature. The upper right image shows how this detail is duplicated on the inside of the house as well.
