Minimal and elegant the house still remains warm and inviting with large sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows bringing the surrounding scenery and Lake Michigan indoors.
It is a curated mix of midcentury modern décor sheepskin tugs and other plush textiles that the interior decorator chose to complement the warm wooden wall and large windows of the ski retreat.
That impact is only accentuated when you use two pitched roofs as this gorgeous contemporary residence in Austin does! Designed by Dick Clark + Associates along with Vinson Radke Homes the exquisite home has a street façade that borrows from the more classic houses in the neighborhood even while standing out visually!
Spatially the three different structures of the house contain three specialized areas with the edifice in the foreground housing the living area kitchen and other public spaces. One of the two rear structures hosts the master bedroom suite with the other containing the kids’ bedroom. An undulating roofscape puts the final touches on a truly mesmerizing lakeside home.
The house has been arranged in two different planes with the lower level containing the living area kitchen and dining. A long covered corridor connects the central courtyard of the residence with the garden and provides a sheltered and illuminated walkway that feels magical.
Reinforced concrete structural steel and a prefabricated system of insulated panels ensure that the temperature inside is carefully controlled even as the clerestory windows usher in a flood of natural light.
