myMarvin Architect's Challenge: Swan Fish Camp

Swan2If you are lucky enough to be able to hang up your “Gone Fishing” sign and head out to the lake, hopefully you are also lucky enough to have a beautiful retreat to go to when the day is over.

For architect Andrea Swan of Swan + Simmons in Minneapolis, a modern fishing camp should use its site to the best of its ability. The Swan Fish Camp, located in Isle, Minn., near Lake Mille Lacs, looks deceptively simple. But its clean lines and restrained aesthetic are the result of careful design planning by Swan. The house is situated on the northern edge of the property to capture the view corridor through a grove of existing birch trees, while allowing optimal southern light exposure to interior and exterior spaces. Marvin products, including Ultimate Casements, Clad Venting Picture Window, Direct-glaze Round Tops, sliding doors and in-swing doors, help to maximize the light exposure.

The Swan Fish Camp is a modern, efficient dwelling for the age-old Minnesota pastime of going up north, heading out on the boat and waiting for the fish to bite.
