Inspired by both the water and the forest, the Turlersee Lake House is a modern tribute to its surroundings. The home is defined by its dramatic curved profile created by a wall that gradually transforms into a roof. Although the seamless transition gives the illusions that the home is organically emerging from the water's surface, almost like a wave, its concrete facade gives the exterior a sculpted appearance. Subtle nods to the landscape continue on the interior with timber-clad walls. An arc of floor-to-ceiling windows and a glazed roof flood the interior with natural light while immersing the living spaces in views of the forest and lake.
