“Oasis” – Allison Petty


A house designed with two elongated structures almost parallel to each other maximize the views of the site. By creating two different interior spaces that form one exterior element, it allows each section to frame the views of the lake where they can stand alone or become one. The interior space is free of any obstructions when entering the space and looking towards the lake. By elevating the house from the ground, it preserves the land below and does not interfere with the incline of the site. The focus is on the concept of touching the earth lightly.
