Simple House with Privileged Views

By • Feb 20, 2018

This simple construction of galvanized metal exterior walls has a privileged location since it is placed on top of a cliff with fantastic views of the lake. Predominantly oriented to the south, the galvanized metal exterior of the house is dotted with shop windows framing views of vignettes to the south, east and west. Inside, a dividing wall runs along the rectangular interior and supports the loft structure, which seems to float over the glazed spaces of the beam. The fir boards wrap three sides of the interior like a large wooden cladding that unifies the views of the staircase, the kitchen and the living room.

This 1400 square foot project was completed in the year 2018 and was designed by the architecture firm Mell Lawrence Architects, under the direction of its team of architects Mell Lawrence, Scott Smith, François Levy, Krista Whitson, & Mark Winford at Silver Creek Village, United States.

The double glass doors open to capture the view of the south, the predominant breezes and the sounds and aromas of nature, creating interior and exterior connections without interruptions when desired.
It has 14 solar panels that collect enough energy to power its intermittent use. The rainwater collected from the roof provides all the water in the home.
