Lake House 1 —Between Forest and Water: House on Nicola Lake

Located near Merritt, BC, Nicola Lake is surrounded by a wild, natural landscape.  Low-slung, hipped roofs stretch the house out into the landscape.  Reclaimed heavy timbers from an old sawmill were used extensively throughout the house, including for a dramatic two-level framework at the principle terrace.  Corner windows add to the effort to recall the “Prairie” house designs of Frank Lloyd Wright
