The pavilion architecture of this second home is inspired by traditional small farmhouses consisting of several buildings organized around an inner courtyard. The residence is made up of a set of four pavilions, each with a simple geometrical shape – a rectangle – and covered by a gable roof.
Each pavilion is dedicated to a specific use: master suite, children’s suite, living room and garage. The spaces between these small houses make up an “inner courtyard” placed under a flat roof. This courtyard includes the common areas: main entrance, service entrance, kitchen, dining room and screened-in area.
The residence is laid out on a single level because the property’s most beautiful vistas open out beneath a canopy of trees on the shore of the lake. Breaking up the residence into small volumes was a way of creating a human-scale “village” on a flat, narrow piece of land.
Inner spaces vary within the pavilions; these spaces can open onto the common areas or be closed, as the occupants wish. Variations in ceiling height define the spaces by creating virtual boundaries between a series of linked open rooms.
