Mod Cott on the Lake is a personal residence positioned on Lake Buchanan, Texas.

It was completed by Mell Lawrence Architects in 2008, and overlooks the lake from atop a dry, rocky hill.


Mod Cott on the Lake by Mell Lawrence Architects:

“A simple metal volume perched on a bluff delivers targeted views of the lake beneath. The guesthouse and weekend retreat complements a close by stone residence and even though it is “on the grid,” its 14 solar panels gather ample power to electrical power its intermittent use. Rainwater is collected from the roof for household use and the xeriscaping needs no irrigation.

The home is oriented to the south, its galvanized metal exterior punctuated by windows that frame vignettes to the east and west. A partition wall separates the elongated rectangular interior and supports the lofts framework, which appears to float over the glazed joist spaces. Fir decking produces the 2 ceiling and loft floor, and is repeated in the supersized wainscoting and stair display wall.

Thirteen-foot doors further expand the modest volume, opening to the south to capture the view, prevailing breezes, and sounds of nature.”
