Any modern lakeside home aims to capture the spirit of the landscape outside and this desire to combine nature with contemporary comfort is evident in the as well. Designed for an urban couple of a reclusive lakeside lot in Missouri this modern residence in wood glass and stucco carefully balances unabated lake views with complete privacy.
Existing building constraints meant that the street façade of the house was left completely untouched while a modern living area kitchen and dining were added to the rear. Connecting the rear garden smaller inner courtyard and barbecue zone with the living space the revitalized interior is filled with a flood of natural light.
With large glass doors and a roof that folds up to the north there is no shortage of natural light inside the new house. This abundant illumination filters into the existing part of the house and transforms the bedrooms as well. A light-filled and elegant addition that seamlessly combines the old and the new!
Concrete is the material off choice on the inside with the three inimitable curved ceiling structures in raw concrete standing in contrast to the polished concrete floor. The repetitive concrete ‘vaults’ capture the Northern sunlight beautifully and fill the interior with bright daylight.
