With a palette of cedar and glass, the Woodland House fades into the forest landscape. It's situated on a wooded plateau. Comprised of three realms, the home is organized around an entry courtyard. The lawn leads to a glazed entrance, linking the structure's sections. Internally, warm walnut floors and exposed beams compliment the scenery. White walls act as a backdrop to views of the neighboring lakeshore, framed in by floor to ceiling windows. While most of the building blends into its surroundings with a dark-stained cedar facade, a mirror-clad shed reflects the trees, almost disappearing into the woodland setting.
