The "Lake House" as the owners call it, has at it's center a staircase wrapping around the chimney - all the rooms are arranged around this core, giving every room in the house an outside wall with windows and views. The core is topped with a windowed "lantern" that draws daylight deep into the center of the house and acts as a lighthouse at night. An open floor plan allows easy flow between the living areas and gives every room great views of the pond that the home sits on.
