Engaging the site in a respectful way, the residence presents a quiet and restrained one level street front, opening up to sweeping views of the lake at the backside. Three vertical massing elements help to organize the program inside the home, while the contrasting horizontal clerestory window language provides diffuse, private light throughout. Retractable screens are utilized extensively to blur the boundary between inside and outside spaces, allowing the lake side of the home to be opened completely to the pool terrace and lake during favorable weather.
