Peninsula Residence

Through the use of glass, steel, detailing and lighting, the project sought to update the home’s interior while redefining its relationship with the lake beyond.

The existing house was a typical American wood stud framing building and it was not unusual for such a structure to be demolished to make way for a brand new structure. However after some consideration, the owner decided to keep the existing ‘bones’ of the house and completely re-organize the house. A glass solarium with the same roof angle was created, rotated 20 degrees in plan to follow the side property line, creating a new triangular pool and lap pool extending to the boathouse.
