Peace. Quiet. Solitude. The Capsule is hard-core escapism, providing a refuge and study for the homeowner. An open, airy library overlooks the lake with light filtering in from the clerestory windows above. A concrete encased study (the “capsule”) provides absolute isolation for high concentration work.
Sloped roofs and painted siding create continuity between the original house and addition when viewed from the street. Moving to the rear, the Capsule has the look and feel of a boathouse. The simple, symmetrical gable hovers above a base clad in naturally rusting Corten panels with a rich natural patina that harmonizes with the existing brick.
