Transcript

  • 1. HOUSE ON LAKE OKOBOJI West Lake Okoboji, Iowa, 2008
    Min.Dayarquitects
  • 2. FOR A LAKE RESIDENCE ON A DIMINUTIVE LOT IN RURAL IOWA WE CONCEIVED OF A HOUSE AS A SERIES OF SPATIAL FRAMES THAT OFFER A FOCUSED AND PRIVATE EXPERIENCE ON AN OTHERWISE DENSELY POPULATED SHORE. THIS SECOND HOME SITS IN A RESORT AREA THAT APPEARS AS AN OASIS IN THE MIDST OF THE MIDWESTERN 'CORN DESERT'. NOT AT ALL NOSTALGIC FOR THE COTTAGES OF YEARS GONE BY THE OWNERS NEVERTHELESS WANTED A HOUSE THAT WAS 'ALL ABOUT THE LAKE' AND THE OAK TREES THAT BOUND THE LAKE FROM THE EXPANSE OF FARMLAND BEYOND. IN RESPONSE TO THE NARROW WEDGE-SHAPED LOT WITH THE LAKE AT ONE END, WE CONCEIVED OF THE HOUSE AS A 3-DIMENSIONAL SET OF 'BLINDERS' THAT OBSCURE THE NEIGHBORS AND GRADUALLY OPEN UP TO THE LAKE BEYOND. PASSING THROUGH THE HOUSE ONE MOVES FROM AREAS OF DENSITY TO AREAS WITH A DIAPHANOUS QUALITY - THE HOUSE IS A SPATIAL GRADIENT.
