Lake George Architect: Modern Addition to a Traditional New England Home


 

Waterfront Merging Modern & Traditional

An architect for a Lake George property was called upon to help the homeowners take advantage of their waterfront views. The views within the existing space were clouded by mid-century closed-in design. Therefore, the new porch utilizes large, curving glass doors and folding glass walls integrated into a stone porch with radiant heating, supplemented by solar access.

 

Modern Architecture: Design Details

Modern building techniques and solar studies were used to ensure heat gain from the sun despite the tree-filled site. Structural integration and detailing were key so heavy snow drifts would not compromise the expansive glass units. The architect ensured the design would be sturdy to reduce deflection by heavy snow, to make sure the glass panels and doors would not be broken or rendered un-operable over time. This is a design built to last.

 

The House

Luxurious outdoor space taking full advantage of the Lake George views are the result of uncompromised quality and sound design.
