House By The Lake, Lake Jungfernsee

Is there anything property in life more perfect than a lake house? Formerly an old park cafe, the House by the Lake transforms a forgotten property into a modern family home. The lakefront site is occupied by mature oak and chestnut trees and an existing emperor terrace. Preserving its historic character, the house is situated on 40 diagonal iron stilts that lightly rest of the historic stones. Its L-shape navigates around the ancient timbers, even integrating one into a small atrium, while its larch facade gives the exterior a treehouse aesthetic. Suspended 10 feet off the ground, the interior appears to float over the water giving living spaces unobstructed views over Lake Jungfernsee. Find out more
