West Lake Shore House
This is Carly Yates' first custom designed home, built by the Yates family contracting company. The property is situated in a densely populated lake community in Morris County NJ, and was thus designed to create a feeling of isolation. Situated on a 75% grade slope, West Lake Shore house is designed as a series of squares inset back on themselves. Another goal of the design of the house was to create a roof line that would enable it's surrounding neighbors to keep their view of the lake, which was achieved with a minimally pitched metal roof. A 15' x 40' deck overlooks the lake from the master suite.
