The School Lake House is situated on an idyllic, secluded lake within driving distance from the Twin Cities. The shapes of the house and the out buildings are reminiscent of vernacular barn and farmstead shapes.
Colorful and geometric roofs seem to grow naturally out of a field of wildflowers on the drive to the home. Classic cedar siding is contrasted with the modern building forms. The views out to the lake through 3 story glass gives the feeling of unity with nature. The outbuilding mimics traditional barn design with a modern twist.
