Tranquil Getaway

Green Lake, Wisconsin / United States of America

This vacation home was designed with family and friends in mind. The client wanted a warm and inviting home, lodge type home where they could entertain. They wanted to take advantage of their environment and have every almost every room be accessible to views of the lake. They wanted to keep the kid's area separated from other bedrooms, which was accomplished through the catwalk. We also had to design around the protected wetlands in front of the home, which limited us in design space. Overall, the home deserved an award because is unique and completely functional. The residence is transitional, but also takes queues from vernacular architecture. It utilizes every aspects of its surrounding environment and gave the client exactly what they wanted; a tranquil getaway.
