We are currently working on ideas for a small lake house located on Chittenden Reservoir just outside Rutland, VT. The site is absolutely incredible and with amazing views. The power lines seen in the photo have since been buried. Our concept for the house is to have a long, linear, and open plan so that each room in the house has an opportunity for a view out to the water and mountains beyond. To better integrate the house to the landscape and keep it from drawing too much attention, the rear of the building is nestled into the hill on which it is sited. Of the many designs we've sketched out the floor plan we chose to post is the current forerunner for further development.
