Penninsula House is a project designed by Bercy Chen Studio LP, through the use of glass, steel, detailing and lighting, the project saught to update the home’s interior while redefining it’s relationship with the lake beyond.
The existing structure was a typical American wood stud framing building. The owner decided to keep the existing ‘bones’ of the house and completely re-organize the house.
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.
