This project consisted of an extensive renovation and addition to an existing lakefront home situated at a prominent point on the lake. It included the removal of the entire existing roof structure and the construction of a large expansion to the lakeside of the home. This addition incorporated a large prefabricated greenhouse area with views to the lake. The existing detached two-car garage was expanded with a third bay and then connected to the existing residence to make a cohesive single structure.
A new second floor was created over a significant part of the home and the rest of the upper level space that was created became large vaulted spaces open to the rooms on the first floor. A large deck was also added to the rear to create a transition and entertaining area between the interior space of the home and the lake.
The resulting composition is a modern home with unique and articulated forms and elevations. It is a significant departure from the original modest structure that serves as the backbone for the various additions and renovations.
