Nestled within a Czech forest, the Lake Cabin was built to replace an old cabin on the lakeshore and is designed to match its predecessor’s footprint. The recently completed cabin currently serves as an all-year-round retreat for the clients’ passion for yachting. Raised slightly off the ground with steel screws, the simple wooden structure was created with prefabricated construction techniques to help reduce the cabin’s impact on the landscape and reduce building time. The slatted larch cladding and framework were laser-cut offsite and then assembled together at the lakefront in just one and a half weeks.

In place of a typical door, the Lake Cabin can be accessed through the large window opening equipped with a sliding glass facade. Folding shutters clad with larch slats extend overtop the glazed opening for privacy and can be folded back to reveal views of the lakefront. Inside, the cabin is made up of one continuous space that comprises a kitchen, bathroom, storage and fireplace. A simple sleeping loft is located on the second level beneath the mono-pitched roof. The interior’s timber wall panels are treated with a white oiled finish and the sand-colored cement screed flooring alludes to the nearby beachfront.
