Postcard House _ 2011
This lakeside retreat is anything but ordinary. Taking design inspiration from a vintage Polaroid Camera, the form of the building is intended to frame the scenic setting from every angle – creating ‘postcards’ from within. It is all about the views and the experience. The main materials for the home are aluminum and Western Red Cedar. It is also built in a low impact manner by placing the home on columns and minimizing impervious pavement. The entire house utilizes natural daylight and natural ventilation. Recycled and Low VOC materials were used throughout.
