Modern house on the lake with a green flat roof and a fantastic view

“Lake House 2” is a modern house by the lake – a project by McClellan Architects based in Seattle. It has an elevator, a green flat roof, a spacious terrace and offers wonderful views of the water. The house is located on a very steep bank, so car access is limited to the top of the property. The customer wanted an exposed location, steel structure and a landscape that would take full advantage of the promenade.

The house has an open floor plan and represents a harmony between the indoor and outdoor spaces. It is easy to walk from the living room to the eat-in kitchen and enjoy the beautiful nature outside from every location. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow light and sun to penetrate and offer fantastic views of the water. The dynamic tension between the man-made and the natural can be seen everywhere. The rhythmic structure of the stacked building masses is structured and repeated by exposed steel beams and columns.

The work of the craftsmen and materials such as stone, plaster of paris and steel are essential to the natural feeling in the house. A steel staircase with Scarpa-inspired details is placed against a Venetian plaster wall. Powerful recessed LED lights illuminate the wall in the evening and look like gold leaf. An elevator has been integrated inconspicuously at the back of the house and makes the garage, the mother-in-law’s apartment and the residential floors easily accessible. The garage is equipped with solar panels for the customer’s electric car. The upstairs apartment has access to another terrace on the green flat roof and enjoys the same fantastic views.
