A Seat For Everyone

Penn Yan, NY

A place for a community table with lake views—a seat for everyone. Re-envisioning the aesthetic of this existing cottage meant opening up the lake fascia by adjusting the rooflines and adding a continuous screen porch. An expressive facade, the porch plays the important role of transition space while providing a bit of shelter and offering ample opportunity to enjoy views of the lake. It is a place for gathering, for entertaining, for reading and, perhaps our favorite, for sleeping outside on a hot summer's night.
