There’s no way you would miss your sight from this home although you just see it at a glance. Its façade of wood T&G paneling as well as the red wall accent are beautiful focal point in its forest surrounding. Designed by architect Miller Hull Partnership and was awarded an American Institute of Architects Housing Award. The modern home features gently sloping roof that houses kitchen, entry and studio. The tower features open plan living room and master bedroom above. With extensive glass walls, there was necessary for the architects to create the large overhangs to protect the interiors and to provide shelter. The large glasses are framed by the high performance wood fir to create a minimal yet strong structure. The exterior wooden walls facade are stained in bold transparent colors.
There’s a small wonderful and natural touch outside in the garden. Well, the garden itself looks more natural than other gardens with delicate flower plants. But the landscaping for this home is wonderful. The shrubs are small and adorn the big trees nicely. The hardscaping / pavement looks natural yet is not quite simple to do. The pavement are made of stone slabs with different sizes and shapes. Sure it took more time to complete the landscaping than using paver. But the look of the pavement is gorgeous for this forest and lake glass house.
The natural-looking interior design is adorned with exposed wood for ceiling. Large glass windows with swivel type opening complement the minimalist living room. A brown leather sofa gets more comfortable to use since it faces the lake view directly. The U shaped kitchen also features similar glass windows, windows that are so large so they bring all the serenity of the lake inside. Even when the owner cook something and turn the burners on, there’s lake view from window just below the grey range hood. There, the kitchen is completed with a kitchen island with wine storage. Project Area: 1,400 sqf. Photographs: Benjamin Benschneider.
