This residence is situated on a heavily wooded, downhill lot overlooking a recreational lake. A visual connection to the lake was paramount to the success of the design. The spaces of the home are situated along a main spine that extends the entire length of the home. The living spaces of the home are all situated on the lake side of this spine offering superior views from the house. Perhaps the most unique feature is the location of the formal Dining Room. Locating this room at the center of the house serves both to advance the notion of the formality of the space while at the same time creating a space that will be a more comfortable space to use by the family on a day to day basis.
Working hand in hand with the developer, we were able to meet multiple environmental standards for new home construction. This was achieved not only through the design but by utilizing such items as engineered hardwood floors on the Main Level, bamboo floors on the Terrace Level, recycled fiber carpet, engineered surface counters, and fluorescent lighting throughout.
