A house by the lake has always seemed tranquil and a perfect solution for a weekend getaway with your spouse or family. A new design by AR Design Studio which base is in Winchester has elevated the concept with their Boathouse project. It’s not by the lake, it elevates on the edge of a lake. Literally. Completed in 2008, the Boathouse project is located in the Lower Mill Estate. It is in Cotswold’s, which is in the west-central England, United Kingdom.
Conceived as a retreat of a tranquil, the Boathouse projects are designed so that it gives you the perfect sense of soaking nature in its own full glory. What separates this design from other by-the-lake retreat house is that the house itself will look as if it was floating on the lake by itself. To make this possible, the building consists of frame structures with four steel legs built on a concrete piles which is planted in the lake. Get the idea?
To give a modern take of nature and tranquility, the house perfectly harmonized the modern aspect of architectural building with traditional materials fit to the rural setting itself. Minimalist and boxy appearance are supported with the neutral color palate and usage of almost all white lighting. The traditional part comes in the usage of an oak and also the slate that blends in with the setting easily. A perfect yin and yang in terms of modern and nature.
A weekend get-away will certainly be complete with the spectacular view you’ll be able to see from inside the large floor to ceiling sliding glass windows that surrounded the house. Enjoy the uninterrupted views and find that the overhanging roofs will give the perfect shades on your hot summer day. Find the unique design below in the picture gallery, and know that the idea of a perfect weekend get-away beside, or maybe, above the lake is certainly attainable.
