Marcus Gleysteen Architects' Lake Point House Honored By AIA New Hampshire
The AIANH Excellence in Design Awards program has sought to highlight excellence in architectural design in New Hampshire for the past 35 years. Entries are judged by a panel of professional peers with guiding principles of design excellence, functionality, sustainability, building performance, and appropriateness.
MGa I Marcus Gleysteen Architects' Lake Point House is an interpretation of New Hampshire lakeshore vernacular. While designed to maximize the lake experience, the house is carefully concealed from the shore and positioned to preserve trees and site features. The lake side of the house is a continuous wall of glass, capped by timbered eaves and anchored by monumental stone chimneys. Along the main entry sequence, the view is revealed through a series of thresholds that mark the progression of arrival and appreciation of this treasured place.
The jury comments about MGa's Lake Point House:
"Impeccable detailing and sublime craftsmanship."
"The jury also liked how structure is separate from skin."
"With its central frontal entrance, tall ceilings, and scale it has formalness yet is also warm and comfortable."
