A serene lake house cuts into a rocky outcrop in Western Idaho

modern-lake-house-exterior-aerial-view

This modern lake house was designed by McCall Design & Planning to fit into a very unique and rugged site on the shores of Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho. The dwelling was sited to take advantage of its 270-degree water views and a granite bedrock backdrop. The construction of this dwelling is mainly composed of rock, teak, and board-formed concrete, which integrates into its natural setting.

Due to this home’s challenging waterfront location defined by massive outcroppings, the project took seven years to complete. The layout was crafted on rock domes that necessitated contours that step down to the lake. The owners have traditional design tastes, yet embraced the modern-leaning elements in their new home — a flat roof, exposed I-beams, and smooth board-form concrete walls that contrast with the surrounding stone.

Above: The owners embraced the craggy locale of their dwelling by requesting exposed granite on the interiors. Rock blasting and cutting were essential to integrate the structure into the bedrock. Granite is an unpredictable material and they took every measure to keep it from fracturing outside the building envelope. Details: Sofa – Thayer Coggin; Eames chair – Design Within Reach; Coffee table – Ralph Pucci; Side table – Arteriors; Barbara Barry rug; Ceiling light – Hubbardton Forge.
