Seven Generations a+e was commissioned to private design services for a new 4.000 s.f. lakefront residence. The home is located on a small lake in northwest Indiana and is situated on the property to allow for a 180 degree panoramic view of the lake.
The design aesthetic originates from an interest by the owner to bring the outside into the dwelling by introducing large expanses of glass and a simple yet elegant exposed structural system that resembles timber frame constructed lake cottage of days gone by. All the structural framing members are glue laminated beams and columns with exposed steel connectors.
The main body of the home contains a guest bed on the main level along with a kitchen, living room, and support spaces. The upper level contains the master bedroom suite and an additional guest bedroom and bath. The garage contains a guest suite above the garage with a fully functional kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom.
