Gallery: Rustic Lakewood House Has a Solar Screen of Indigenous Logs

Set in a pine forest near a still lake, this rustic house playfully mimicks mother nature while also taking advantage of her benevolent charms. Dubbed the Lakewood House and designed by Centerbrook Architects, the home has a unique fanned layout that follows the sun’s daily arc, allowing it to fill the rooms with daylight. The home also features closed-loop geothermal heating and cooling, abundant insulation, natural and local materials, and passive solar design.
