The project brief was to capture and frame the lake’s image and allow the family to enjoy and share this uniquely located holiday home with family and friends with ease. The client wanted a light, airy home that settled into the landscape. 

The concept was based around a series of floating planes that peel from the landscape, allowing the home to nestle into the contour of the elevated building platform. The two pavilion roofs of the main living area and master suite have the appearance of floating above the linear form of the house, which in turn creates an ever-changing play of light internally.

The long sleek building form stretches across the back boundary, providing panoramic lake views. The native environment has been extended into the property with extensive planting in order to frame views of the lake and the surrounding landscape.  The material palette and colour selections were chosen to complement the context. Seamless connections from interior to exterior that makes the home feel larger than it is, ideal for entertaining and taking in the stunning vista.
