Fort Erie Lake House

How can we enhance the interactions of family while engaging the lake frontage on a thin lot with a home only 16 feet wide?

Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada   |  3,500 sf  

The thin 16-foot wide house contains spaces that are arranged linearly to fit the narrow property.  The design connects the beach to the heavily vegetated yard through a simple palette of materials that creates an uninterrupted flow throughout the interior spaces of the home.  Working in conjunction with the cabinetry, a series of transom windows delivers light deep into the spaces.  This line of windows maintains visual continuity through the linear house and connects the lake to the backyard beyond.
