The setting of this house is a serene green place bordering upon the calm waters of a lake. Accordingly, the building’s design is kept smooth and simple in form. A lot of glass is used for the façade revealing beautiful images of the surrounding water. From a distance it seems like the house is floating. The connection to nature is reinforced by the colors used on the façade.
White stucco, wood and glass merge in a harmonic way making this home look like a natural part of the setting. The most interesting thing about this house is that it actually has two stories. The lower floor is located under water and receives its light from internal vides. The bedrooms and bathroom are located on the lower level.
Living area and dining room
Above them, on the main level is an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining room and living room. The façade here is richly glazed from top to bottom. One of its longer sides faces the water and the other opens to a deck, located on the shore among the fresh green grass of an open yard. There is also a terrace on the roof reachable through an outdoor staircase. It presents another opportunity to relax and enjoy views of the lake from different angles. Even though, the house looks small it offers enough space for both indoor and outdoor activities.
Modern minimalist interior
The interior is modern and minimalist in the neutral color scheme. The walls and ceilings are white, the floors – tiled in gray. There is a modest amount of decoration mostly in the face of flower pots and fruit bowls. The deck is also partly decorated with flowers.
