The strategy for re-designing this residence was to use reflective surfaces such as acrylic panels and mirrors on walls and doors, therefore picking up the subtle reflection of the light and water’s rippling motion as a way to acknowledge the lakeside location. Exterior materials and refined detailing of the roof structure give the volume clean lines and a bold presence, while abstracting the form of the original dormers and gable roof.
