The Pump House by Branch Studio Architects is sort of a project that started out as a simple storage space and evolved into what it is now — a quiet lakeside retreat.

The original idea was for a temporary shed-like space that would be used to store a water pump and some farm equipment, as well as a quiet space for some tea while the owners came to hang out with their horse on the weekends. But somewhere along the way, between the conceptualization stage and the actual building, little changes here and there created something else entirely. It’s now complete with an open-plan living room and kitchen, a wood-burning stove, a central bathroom, a studio and a bedroom. The front of the house has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. What’s more, the cabin is self-sustaining, thanks to its solar panels and tanks for collecting and recycling rainwater.
