Lake Point House

Marcus Gleysteen Architects as Architects

Located on eighteen acres, the Lake Point House serves as a retreat to connect an active family to the outdoors and to each other. An interpretation of New Hampshire lakeshore vernacular, the house respects and compliments its site. The home was oriented to optimize views to the water, and it was positioned to preserve trees and site features. The natural wood used both on the exterior and throughout the interior; the granite chimneys; the layering of steel columns with the window system; and the wood beams soaring out towards the water, all reflect a sensitivity to context, scale, and composition.


A key function of the house is its ability to accommodate two people or twenty people with equal comfort and grace.  Reflected in its massing, the house is organized into three distinct units.  The first unit serves as the central home.  It contains the kitchen space paired with the master suite directly above.  The kitchen includes intimate sitting and eating areas that make this component a complete living space for the core family.  The second unit, the great room, accommodates guests and extended family, and incorporates large-scale dining and seating areas.  Separated on the far side of the great room, is the third unit--a guest wing that is separated by a sliding door and remains out of sight when not in use.


Along the main entry sequence, the lake view is revealed through a series of thresholds that mark the progression of arrival andappreciation of thistreasured place.  Inside the great room, the lake view unfolds along a wall of glass panels, and doors open to a wide terrace flanked by two covered outdoor porches with direct access to the lawn and lakefront.  Mature trees screen the house from the lake, providing both privacy and strategic view corridors.
