Iowa Lake House by Min|Day Architects

This house on Iowa's Lake Okoboji, designed by San Francisco and Nebraska-based Min|Day Architects, won two AIA Nebraska Awards: one for its overall design, and one for this amazing cabinet that doubles as a headboard. Designed to mirror ripples on the lake's surface, the cabinet is made from stacked plywood that was cut using animation software...

The exterior of the house is equally impressive. Wedged between a cluster of oak trees, the home has views of the lake and woods. Slats on the exterior window frames shade the interior without covering up the glass. Constructed from Corten steel and wood cladding, the home's modern design sits quietly on the site, preserves the trees around it, and makes the most of the amazing lake views.
