This amazing house is awarded with Best Custom Home 5,000 to 10,000 s.f. from MERIT AWARDS. A tremendous site and an owner with a contemporary minimalist vision and respect for the natural environment inspire the design of this home. Located on an acre plus site overlooking a golf course, the home is oriented toward the lake view. Careful attention is given to eliminate the view of adjacent homes from the interior of this house enhancing both the views out, as well as meeting the owners desire to have a “see-through home with a high level of privacy”.
Features include rammedearth walls, extensive use of glass for taking in views, operable windows to allow the house “to breath”, and a soaring roof form, clad in copper, that appears to float above the home. Landscaped courtyards to the east provide both privacy & promote outdoor living. The house is designed by Kendle Design Collaborative. Landscape design is done in collaboration with Floor & Associates. Interior design is done in collaboration with Jack Wosniak.
