The Lake George Cabin achieves its shape by adjusting to a number of obstacles and opportunities: neighbors to the east, a dirt road to the west, beautiful views into the woods to the north, and tree filtered daylight from the south. A large southern glass entrance connects the cabin to the main house on the property and allows afternoon daylight inside. A deep overhang protects the interior from the harsh summer sun and shelters a small porch from the rain. The cabin’s amenities – a day bed, a fold-down bunkbed and a kitchenette – are carved from the windowless western facade which provides privacy from the main access road. A large window in the bedroom frames views of the mountains in the distance.
