A new house concept for The Lakes by yoo...

Lakeside House

Info

We’d completed two projects for The Lakes by Yoo when we were asked to solve the problem of an unsold north-facing plot. The solution was to create a house so fabulous that its wow factor would mitigate the aspect. We went back to the Lake’s core ideas of space, nature, peace and freedom, exploding the box to create a semi open-plan, double-height space that’s flooded with light. We brought the outdoors indoors with large, glazed sliding doors that give 180-degree views of the lake and wooded estate, and clad the exterior in wood. A Gatsby version of a chalet, it’s in the tradition of great beach houses of the Hamptons or Australian coast.
