Lakehouse Architecture Design Using historic Excelsior shingle-style lake houses as precedent, TEA2 Architects created a modest 1-1/2 story gabled form with low eaves and upper level rooms that are fully within the roof

 

The owners of this lake-front home loved the location of their original house on this property, but it proved to be beyond repair. They wanted to build a new home with a casual ‘lake-home’ feel, one that took full advantage of the Lake Minnetonka views yet allowed for privacy on this narrow city lot. They also wanted the new house to fit into the scale and character of their neighborhood.

Using historic Excelsior shingle-style lake houses as precedent, TEA2 Architects created a modest 1-1/2 story gabled form with low eaves and upper level rooms that are fully within the roof.  Cross-gables were thoughtfully massed to define a west side-yard entry that also forms an exterior garden ‘room’. Gathering spaces are located toward the lake-side end of the home, with an open Living Suite (Living, Dining, Kitchen, Porch and Terrace) on the Main Level and the Master Suite overlooking the lake from above. The exterior uses stained cedar wall and roof shingles and copper and stone details to convey a timeless character similar to nearby historic homes.  The result is unique yet familiar.

 

Lake Cottage Inspiration

Lakehouse Exterior

Siding: Cedar shingle wall siding, Cabot ‘Sagebrush’ semi-transparent stain

Stone at chimney: Glacier Stone (quarry) thin depth veneer, ‘Loon Lake’ granite. Random Ashlar

Garage doors: IDC ‘Series 7’, VG cedar. Natural finish: Australian Timber Oil

To the Lake!

The entry procession from street to house invites visitors to the lake beyond.  This call to enjoy the lake also inspired the form of the house. The linear plan was pushed to the east, allowing the entry path along the west a visual corridor out to the lake. The garage has been rotated to the east as well, with doors out of direct view from the street. Passing through the entry pergola, the procession through the side-yard garden and to the formal entry ends inside, where the sweeping lake view unfolds.

Walkway pavers: Bluestone

Arranging for Light

Great care was taken in crafting the lake views – arranging the rooms and large windows for optimal view, yet also adding strategically placed translucent (stained & clear) glass and tall hedges to screen out views of nearby neighbors. The west side garden space also allows more sunlight to enter, avoiding most late-day shadows from the neighboring house.

Living Room

In a more formal room, the fireplace wall likely would have been symmetrical. To create an informal cottage feel, the architect offset the bluestone fireplace and paired it with a concealed TV and different cabinets to either side. Still, everything feels carefully designed and well balanced.
