The summer cottage with lake access is conceived as a formally reduced bungalow consisting of two separate volumes for the living room and bedrooms. The roadside building housing the garages and bedrooms is connected via a spacious wood deck with the seaside living-and-dining wing. Inside, outside and in-between areas blend fluidly, creating exciting spatial relationships. Four bedrooms of equal size enjoy views across the courtyard with its three pine trees and onward through the gracious living-and-dining hall to the lake. The vistas are framed by windows as if they were pictures, further intensifying their presence.
