The site for this dual occupancy building is located on the shores of a large lake. A "nautical feel" was a primary design requirement for the project. The inclusion of treated pine pergolas to the lakeside, provided an open, casual, transitional space between the building and the waterfront.The use of timber in this project softened the overall structure but allowed for the definition of the primary lines of the dwellings.The bulk of the posts created the required solidness to balance the depth of the timber beams, achieving a look of permanence. Design Pine, primed and treated pine, was specified to ensure the structures would not become victims of their exposed location.
