Combining the active lifestyle and appreciation of modern Scandinavian architecture of a youthful Minnesota couple, this vacation retreat celebrates its natural north woods environment.Save this picture!© Chad Holder PhotogaraphySave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Chad Holder PhotogaraphyProgrammatically, the Northern Lake Home is composed of two primary massings separated by a glass core. Splaying out to the lake beyond and nestled into a natural swale, the public spaces contour along the landscape blurring the distinction between its built and natural environments. The voluminous living areas feature large walls of glass to welcome in the sometimes scarce northern light and capture intimate lake views through the embankment. A glass core converts through its operable glass wall to combine the dining and private lounge to allow a sheltered connection to the woods and lake beyond. The private family area is partially embanked into the landscape and set away from the public area, protecting its sleeping quarters and private spaces from the active lifestyle surrounding it.Save this picture!© Chad Holder PhotogaraphyWith a subtle darkened exterior material palate, the Northern Lake Home blends into the forested landscape, while white oak finishes provide a warmth to the minimal and crisp interior that allows the surrounding natural environment to be the highlight.Save this picture!© Chad Holder PhotogaraphyProject gallerySee allShow lessStructural Design of Zaha Hadid’s 1000 Museum Revealed in CAD DrawingsArchitecture NewsCall for Submissions: Ground Up Issue 7Call for Submissions Share Northern Lake Home / Strand Design ArchDaily Save this picture!© Chad Holder Photogaraphy+ 27 Share Area: 4800 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882914/northern-lake-home-strand-design Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStrand DesignOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNorthern TownshipUnited StatesPublished on November 07, 2017Cite: “Northern Lake Home / Strand Design” 07 Nov 2017.
