Lake House

Design*
November, 2020


What if all that’s left to design are windows. The renovation of this post-war villa was brought down to the design of six windows frames, framing the surrounding peat lake. Frames were measured, drawn, sawn, milled, sanded, primered, lacquered, and mounted by the neighboring full-automatic window factory.
