Jacks Point Lake House

The Jack’s Point vision was to ensure the architecture was subservient to the intense, arresting landscape. A design synonymic with its setting was ultimately achieved, owning partly to the overall low profile of the form of the home, and partly to the restricted pallet of materials used.


We started with a list of features that we wished for in a house and ended up with a house that fulfilled every wish. We particularly love the fact that the quality of the design and build are immeasurably satisfying.

Stone, cedar, steel and glass feature throughout the interior and exterior of the home. The long layout of the house lies harmoniously along the topography of the site and enables all the rooms to enjoy spectacular lake views, a noted feature of the area.


Katrina and Alister did an outstanding job designing our house for us; we liked their design philosophy and, in working through the design, we felt they struck a pleasant balance between aesthetic goals and practical and budgeting requirements for the home.

Large overhangs increase the shadow lines of the house, rendering more depth to the façade, and allowing for greater protection from the sun.
