Lakeside Library is a multi-function accessory unit designed to complement a 100-year-old lakeside vacation house. The main house is a rambling, horizontal structure clad in red cedar shingles with dark green trim.

The outbuilding—which serves as library, guest house, boat storage, garage, exercise room, and tennis viewing pavilion—is more vertically proportioned but incorporates the same exterior materials as the house.
