Designed by Murdough Design, the Squam Lake Cabin is a lake home for a family and their guests. Sitting on an existing foundation, the home is thought of as a simple box protected by a large sheltering roof, with spaces designed to create a variety of distinct experiences.
Murdough Design is a small collaborative studio focusing on architectural design. We design unique responses to the specifics of place, site, use, and client - merging practical requirements with intangible aspects distinct to each design problem. Our approach considers relationships between landscape and architecture, relationships between space, light, material, and form, and relationships between the subjective perceptual experience and the environment. We believe that architecture has the power to enrich lives. We are devoted to providing critical, innovative, and sustainable design, rigorous project management, and excellent service.
Nestled into a Hemlock-Beech forest, the Lakeside Camping transforms an existing summer retreat into a three generation family compound. The camp’s quiet repose on the periphery of existing structures discreetly reorders the site, strengthening relational hierarchies and celebrating the landscape.
