Modern Wooden House On Lake Okoboji

This house is designed by MinDay and located in rural Iowa, Lake Okoboji. The whole design is focused on the lake and consists of series of spatial frames that provides as private as public areas. The lake itself is ringed by numerous oak trees which form beautiful a canopy around the lake, separating it from the expanse of farmland beyond. The house’s frames also provides owners with additional privacy when they are at home. Living areas are open to the lake and woods views, but visually closed to neighbors on the sides. The exterior of the house is done in sustainably-harvested Ipe cladding, concrete, and aluminum panels. The interior continues the theme of naturalism and also features a lot of wooden details and neutral colors.
