The clients purchased this narrow waterfront site with the intention of building a family home for themselves and their two teenaged children. The site faces north to the lake and has a significant fall that needed to be addressed in the design.
The entry level of the home contains the primary living rooms and the master suite, to address future accessibility issues. On the lower level a suite of rooms was created to provide the children with waterfront bedrooms, a deck, bathroom and private living room. View lines to the water were a principal focus of the design, with all living and bedrooms having access to the view. A combination of raked and flat ceilings creates interest in the spaces, to compliment the extensive glazing.'
