LAKE GENEVA PHOTO STUDIO
This new photo studio was designed for a site overlooking Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The building was built over an existing foundation and is part of an ensemble that includes a public lake walk, an existing boat house, a natural rock wall that separates the main house from the studio, and a newly planted mesic prairie.
The studio is conceived as a single simple box volume with a glass bay and a red clad landscape wall to define the entry. A two story studio volume with wrap around glass faces the north lake view, and will double as living space for future uses. The glass bay appendage can be opened at the corners to convert to a screen porch in the summer. Entry is between the white volume and red landscape wall that reflects the stone wall to the west.
