The Nature of Place
A delicate necklace of buildings starts from the fanning delta at the lake’s edge, stretches through a forested glen and leads to the waterfall at its head. An elevated boardwalk echoes the twisting course of the stream as it connects the buildings and eventually dissolves into a path leading to the falls. Upstream, the guesthouse and office/gym inhabit the narrow valley meadow with its forested edges. Downstream, the main building’s large living space opens to a full view of the deep lake, broad sky and changing weather.
