Garlapo Lake House

Posted in Uncategorized by mhume on March 19, 2018

The proposed reconfiguration focuses on the original portion of the house toward the lake. The façade opens up toward the lake on the north side of the house with 2 symmetrical gable roof lines. These two roofs join at the center where they shed water.

The stairway is shifted outside of the original building envelope to ensure the un-interrupted view of the lake and the path of diffused light to the interior. The duality and symmetry of the new façade reflects the sites and sounds of this incredible place and the duality in the form is meant to remind us of the perpetual bond between two souls.
