The Loosdrecht Lake House by 2by4 Architects

View all 6 Photos

The  Loosdrecht Lake House lets the natural surroundings of the adjacent lake environment freely enter its gates through the complete transparency of its two sides. This quaint little residence designed by 2by4architects is located on the waterfront of the Loosdrecht Lake in the Netherlands. It  has a large stretch of glass that rises from the floor to the high ceiling and can be opened entirely on one side during the summer for recreational activities like boating and entertaining. A fireplace hangs down from the ceiling to create warmth during the cold winter months. To ensure limited obstruction of the stunning views outside, the architects concealed the toilet, shower and storage area behind a  double thick wall.
