South Blue Lake
The design of South Blue Lake fully embraces the opportunity of building on Midwestern lake property. The outward expression of this lake house appropriately addresses both the street and lake fronts while forming amenities such as an outdoor fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and a screened patio on a large deck, all with clear lake views. A trellis connects the garage and bedroom loft to the main volume of the house, complete with a walk-out basement and boating storage below the screened porch. A variety of design elements ranging from contemporary timber frame bents to traditional wrought-iron gates vitalize the cottage character of this lake house.
This design is flexible with an optional lower level to add bedrooms, bathrooms, and recreation space as desired.
