Project Description

Perched at the top of a slope, this dwelling offers a breathtaking view of the body of water below. The request was to create a space to comfortably enjoy the view for as long as possible during the summer. The proposal was to extend the existing indoor living spaces outdoors. The outdoor living room, kitchen, dining room, hot tub, and showers installed alongside each other, each facing the spectacular view meet every need. As well, a pavilion and a patio were also built closer to the lake to provide a closer location for enjoying the water.
