Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design

first_imgArchDaily Photographs:  Paul CrosbyText description provided by the architects. The open, permeable design of this house results from the client’s active lifestyle and desire for connectivity to the site from all spaces. Designed for a narrow, wooded, pie-shaped lakefront site, this young family sought to develop outdoor play and garden spaces while celebrating views of the lake. The concept organizes the public and private spaces into two separate wood-clad forms connected by a glass-enclosed breezeway and screen porch.

The wood-clad wings of the house sit on a bluestone “outcropping”, which extends the natural entry grade, grounding the house. A series of bluestone monolith steps extend from the lakeside terrace toward the shore. A folded, dark metal plane wraps the wood wings as walls and roof, creating a sculptural cap of the house. On the west edge of the house, the metal wall is punctuated by dynamic window placement, allowing light in while screening views of the neighbors. Dramatic floor to ceiling windows in the living/dining spaces and master bedroom draw in views of the site and lake, and provide north light. The house engages the site during all seasons and was constructed for $200 per square foot.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbyProject gallerySee allShow lessFixing a Road in Johannesburg: 26’10 South Architects on Informal ArchitectureArticlesInhabitable Slot / Dimos Moysiadis + Ioannis Oikonomou + Xaris TsitsikasArticles Share Houses “COPY” Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design Projects Year:  CopyHouses•St. Paul, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/65376/farquar-lake-residence-altus-architecture-design Clipboard Architects: ALTUS Architecture + Design Area Area of this architecture project Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + DesignSave this projectSaveFarquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design Area:  3360 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2008 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/65376/farquar-lake-residence-altus-architecture-design Clipboard Save this picture!© Paul Crosby+ 35 Share United States “COPY” CopyAbout this officeALTUS Architecture + DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSt PaulSt. PaulUnited StatesPublished on June 23, 2010Cite: “Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design” 23 Jun 2010.
