The secret of the Lake House is in the use of volumes to define living spaces from within and without.  Simple, clean contemporary lines bring together traditional building materials for a house that is perfectly suited to its site and the owners' needs for a summer home that expresses itself as a pure work of art.  The house was built on the foundation of a pre-existing building at an idyllic site facing a quiet cove on Lake Champlain.
