Here is the architectural works of Johnsen Schmaling Architects on the Camouflage House in Green Lake-Wisconsin, USA. The inside of the house, while unapologetically contemporary, continues Wisconsin’s long history of lake cottage architecture, which has traditionally featured exposed timber construction, interior wood siding, combined living and dining halls centered around a fireplace, and a limited palette of natural materials. Meticulously detailed, the entire entry level of the Camouflage House is clad with clear-sealed MDF panels, held apart by reveals that accentuate the strict structural rhythm of the house and align with the exposed engineered wood beams above. Exposed integrally colored concrete floors throughout the house complement the warmth of the MDF walls, as does a three-sided CorTen steel-clad fireplace forming the focal point of the open living hall. Throughout the house, sustainable materials were specified, such as low-VOC paints, recycled products, native woods, and high-performance glazing. Let’s check it out.
