A main focus in designing this home was to accommodate and entertain large numbers of overnight guests and full amenization of the lakefront property. It was important not to block any of the lake view but still make the spaces have minimal impact on the steep site.

It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
A glass-paned railing and beige-colored walls allow the sleek metal framework of the railing to stand out in the space. Natural light from the surrounding windows and door flows freely throughout the area thanks to the transparent railing.
