Modern Lake House Plan


There could be hundreds of reasons why a modern lake house is so appealing. If you are a nature lover, chances are, you would probably have a plan to build one.

Whether the lake house would be for an all-year-round home or simply a vacation home in the summers, this type of house offers a quiet and relaxing outdoor and indoor living next to the water and abundant greenery. It also would provide an immense playground and learning space for your family. We believe that a good lake house design harmonizes the architecture with its scenic surroundings. 


The Modern Lake House Plan Specifications (Original Design, Archistock No. 000-014):

  • 4,000 sf heated area, 2-story structure with an optional basement bonus

The Design

We design this modern lake house with a concept of simplicity and modern minimalist touch. The architectural design has contemporary and minimal details using natural materials on the exteriors, like stone, glass, concrete and wood. We are aiming to maintain a simple minimalist and airy look with no clutter and easy maintenance so it can offer modern living convenience. We apply floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows on the sides and at the back. There are movable wooden slat panels on the sides for heat and visual barrier. This way, the skin of the house are able to create transparency and a seamless indoor and outdoor connection, without compromising privacy.



Common living areas and service rooms (garage, storage, mechanical) are located on the first floor. There is a big great room with an open kitchen and dining overlooking the landscape at the back of the house. This open-concept indoor living is directly connected to a covered outdoor patio and landscape / backyard.

The bedrooms are located on the second floor and totally private. All upper rooms have great exposure to the surrounding scenery. The master suite is facing the main view at the back with a viewing deck. There is another smaller room that has access to this viewing deck. You can use this space as part of the master, either for study/work from home, yoga/work out, or a baby room if you are expecting or have a toddler.

The other three bedrooms are for children or guests. Two of them are sharing a jack-and-jill bathroom, while the other has a direct access to a common bath. The position of these bedrooms are on the other end of the hallway so they would have their own privacy and won’t disturb the master suite.



Purchasing This 5-Bedroom Modern Minimalist Lake House Plan

This house plan is available for pre-order / purchase, either the original design or with design modifications (custom). We can modify the architectural design and drawings, e.g. reshape and resize the house so it can fit your land, rearrange the rooms and internal layout to fit your family needs, modify the windows and roof, as well as change / add the garage (including its location) or add a full basement. Mirrored plan is also available. 


The Basic Plan Set

The basic plan set is available in vector .pdf and/or .dwg formats. The set includes the following drawings:

  • Floor Plans 
  • Roof Plan
  • 4-side Building Elevations
  • Building Sections (min. 2)
  • Exterior and/or Interior Rendering Images (min. 10)
  • A Non-Exclusive License for 1x personal use

Custom plan sets / other drawing packages are available if you need additional drawings e.g. foundation plan, electrical plans, site plan, interior drawings, etc; or if you require a specific plan set for permit application / other purposes.

Costs to build the house per square foot will vary across cities and countries, depending on several factors, e.g. building materials / products that you select, the location and site condition where you want to build it, types of structural system / foundation, whether you need design modification or local permit, etc. Usually you can use our basic house plan / drawing set to obtain an initial cost estimate from a local builder in your city / country. Furthermore, if you buy our house plans, you can always adjust the original design and drawings to suit your budget.
