The Little House

The clients purchased two narrow waterfront sites. On this site they wanted a small house to later be used as guest accommodation for visiting family and friends but in the interim they would live in the house with their two children until the main residence was constructed. A large garage was required to complement the garaging available in the primary residence.

The form of the residence was kept purposely simple to allow the other residence to be more prominent. The slope of the site was addressed by incorporating a split level design. All living rooms and bedrooms have water views. The combination of raked and flat ceilings throughout the cottage create shape and interest in the rooms.
