From the architect. This lakeside retreat is anything but ordinary. Taking design inspiration from a vintage Polaroid camera, the form of the building is intended to frame the scenic setting from every angle – creating ‘postcards’ from within. It is all about the views and the experience. The main materials for the home are aluminum and Western Red Cedar. It is also built in a low impact manner by placing the home on columns and minimizing impervious pavement.

The entire house utilizes natural daylight and natural ventilation. Recycled and Low VOC materials were used throughout. The back of the house is opaque, keeping the internal focus out toward the lake. Pea gravel was used as a low impact site material. The main materials are corrugated aluminum, aluminum fascia, and Western Red Cedar.
