A CATALYST ARCHITECTURE Reprint From
MODERN CABIN, New Designs For An American Icon
By Michelle Kodis
Gibbs Smith, Publishers, 2007
   





Lily Pad House By Matthew Ackerman, LEED AIA of Catalyst Architecture, Sensitvely Sited With Views To The Lake Site Plan
 
The cabin's innovative roof design resulted in an undulating form reminiscent of the lily pads that skim the surface of an adjacent lake.  Although rustic in appearance, the cabin features contemporary styling inside and is equipped with the conveniences of home.  The open floor plan connects to a screened porch that extends into the forest, enhancing the building's careful
connection to the two-acre site.
