Lake House

The stuff of daydreams. Driving through the gates of your lakeside property. All shingles and shades of green. Settle your gaze on the rippling water and sigh. Turn and step into the inviting entry hall and hold your breath waiting for that first glimpse of the great room. Never disappoints. There is one problem though. Should you wash off the dust from your trip with a quick dip in the lake or a long soak in that bathroom. Thank goodness it's only a daydream and you're not really being forced to make the choice. Lake Martin House by Birmingham, Alabama-based Bill Ingram Architect.

More from Marc&Co

By building in under the original house and adding a two level extension to the rear, Brisbane architects Marc&Co have increased the usable footprint of this Queenslander style house while maximising the space available for a garden at the rear of the inner city block. From the street the old home retains its original features and now contains the bedrooms while the additions allow for the open plan living with the indoor/outdoor connection so prized by Australian families.

A love letter

Dear Simpson Jacoby Architecture,

I just wanted to pen a short note to let you know how much I love your work on this old house. Sympathetic, stylish, simple and soft. Love the colour palette, the whitewashed floors, the kitchen and the restored, sinuous stairs rising to that dark and moody studio office. Love how your client has filled it gently and thoughtfully with their possessions and how you knew it would be just so. Love it all.

Regards,

Jo
