Hoffmann Bath House
Beach Lake, Pennsylvania

The Hoffmann Bath House was conceived as a stand alone bath room set at the edge of a meadow.   The simple wood structure is set on a foundation of indiginous stone - one stone supporting each corner.  The cresent and stars above the entry serve as a 'night light' to guide your way in the night. 

The fence enclosure behind the bath house serves as an outdoor shower in the summer and a storage area through the winter season.
