All News Shingle-style AdaptiveJuly 22, 2019

Great Lakes By Design recently featured our Fisk Lake Cottage in an online article called “Shingle-style adaptive” focusing on the approach to the design process on this exceptional piece of lakefront property. Although completed a handful of years ago, this residence continues to set a high precedence for our approach to design. 

“Citing the architect Robert A. M. Stern’s rejuvenation of the shingle-style home in the late 1970s and 1980s as a reference during the project, Gerwin said the Sears Architect team’s design of the Fisk Lake residence favored carefully detailed roof overhangs and eave returns to create a cozy, yet classic external appearance. Gray wood shingles and white trim were framed by an asphalt shignle roof and stone base to create a light, textured facade against the lakeside backdrop.”
