A multi-generational lake house designed to bring family together and capture sweeping lakefront views.
Balancing Views, Light & Site
Modworks worked with our client to create an efficient, durable cabin to be enjoyed with friends and family. Situated on a stunning piece of Central Alberta lakefront property, the building site offered significant constraints. Steep embankments delineated the shape and location of the cabin, resulting in a pronounced L-Shape plan. Public spaces face the lake; large glazings are placed along signature views out to the water, oriented to the North. It was important to both our client that spaces were light-filled, while celebrating spectacular views. The Master bedroom's sightlines are oriented toward the lake as well, with a door that spills out to a private deck.

Less Maintenance, More Relaxation
The cabin's interior features several durable and practical finishes: Luxury vinyl tile, two-tone white/walnut thermofoil cabinetry, commercial grade tile flooring, and X. LED lighting is used throughout. On the exterior, the owner opted for the warmth and beauty of natural stained cedar siding, coupled with low maintenance fibre cement paneling.
Everything On One Floor
A single-story dwelling, the main floor features two distinct wings. A public wing for living and entertaining, a private wing housing sleeping quarters and a four-piece bathroom. A large North-facing deck captures morning sun and sweeping views to the lake.
