Echo Lake House

A small 1500sf two story weekend house set on a small lake front parcel.  The essence of the house is to have a large living room that opens onto a deck overlooking the lake blurring the boundary between inside and outside.  The house in its entirety is wrapped in a veil of redwood lath slats with operable panels at window and door locations.  When the occupant is not present, the whole house can be shuttered.
