A seasonal summer cottage was completely gutted down to its bare studs and was then transformed into an expanded, energy-efficient residence that takes advantage of its setting alongside a scenic lake. New corner windows reorient spaces toward the sweeping lawn and the water. A second floor was added where a new master suite commands spectacular views over the site, and an artist's studio provides a private workspace away from the activities of the rest of the house. All interiors are the work of Amie Weitzman Interior Design.
