We take as reference to name this article to the homonymous American film the small lake house plans where the protagonist of the film is a house and where also of the plot (between real and fantastic) that talks about the action of destiny in relationships between people, is an excuse to talk about architecture. That house raised a debate between who the design and its inhabitant about the relationship of architecture with the landscape … is it the architecture that should surround nature or is it nature that should surround the architecture and give meaning to it?
Located in a steep terrain, with slight slope towards the lake, the small lake house plans has two faces, the first one that we find is the vehicle and pedestrian access to it on the highest part of the land. The house is basically structured from two elements, on one side the sloping roof that gives a strong imprint and that is covers most of the covered
And semi-covered space of the same and on the other hand a series of volumes with flat roof that group a series of services. From this back part the small lake house plans rests on part of the slope and on a part of the flat roofs there are photovoltaic panels that give us an idea that there is a sustainable thinking of the energy supply of the house.
