From the architect. Located on a hillside property overlooking Hayden Lake, the Henry Point project is a 830 sqf loft addition and intensive reprogramming of an existing lake cabin in northern Idaho. The project connects visitors of family and friends to the surrounding landscape through a series of decks and operable facades that create large indoor/outdoor gathering spaces as well as two independent living areas.

Follow the break for more photographs, drawings, and text about this loft addition by Michael Flowers Architect.

The addition is shifted back to produce a sequence of spatial filters that smoothly mediate levels of exposure for more private areas of the home and take advantage of numerous views to the lake. Remaining connected through the kitchen, dining, and living areas, the addition and existing cabin act as a series of transitional interior and exterior spaces, with the ability to adapt to seasons, lake lifestyle, and the evolving needs of a growing family, while keeping the idea of lake cabin and bunk house intact.

Materials are local and native to the area, to take on the color and patina of Northern Idaho. These materials include fir, concrete, steel, and basalt, all of which are durable and low maintenance helping mediate the extreme seasonal conditions at the lake edge. Most wood was salvaged from an eastern Washington grain silo built in the early 1900’s and milled specifically for use at Henry Point.
