Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks – Oak Cottage
Silver Bay, NY
Located within the historic Silver Bay Association YMCA of the Adirondacks, on the west shore of Lake George, Oak Cottage was designed to replace two pre-existing 3-season cottages as a year round structure, capable of accommodating large families or groups. As part of Silver Bay’s master plan, it was important that this new structure be ADA accessible. Phinney Design staff worked closely with the Silver Bay staff to develop a vernacular in keeping with the many diverse structures and architectural vernaculars on the property.
Exposed rafter tails, timber brackets, natural granite, painted clapboard siding, and white Victorian porch details all reference common details used throughout the camp property and respect the Arts and Crafts, Victorian and Cottage vernaculars found on the adjacent structures.
