Otter Lake Cottage

– Modest scale family retreat to replace a decaying structure at the end of its life span
– Womb-like feel, upturned boat, structure taking clues from ribs of a canoe
– Opening up to take advantage of dramatic slope in site and focus views to the lake
– Split in form – limiting where light is brought in – along clerestory
– Open living space with loft sleeping areas
– Envisioned as zinc panels on the exterior with exposed plywood ribs on the interior
