This is a vacation home from the Bercy Chen Studio, located on Lake Austin, Texas. The house that combines modern and traditional style in 1980 is called the Lake House Architecture Design, home to relax while on vacation at the weekend.
The house is already there or built since 1980, so far has undergone many renovations. The goal is certainly to make the building follows the style of today. Advantages of the houses located in the area around the lake is a landscape that is extraordinary. Therefore many parts of the house that use glass in order to access the beauty of the panorama around more freely and even the windows were made with large portions. At the front of the house was also given a small pond that will add a perfect view of the lake. Park with green grass will provide more value given natural atmosphere. This home you will be able to enjoy the natural beauty of About a from anywhere and from any angle because this house is designed to do just that, giving a sense of comfort and beauty in total.
Glass paneled walls surround the entire house. A glass balcony was installed into the roof. The traditional gabers and gable roof were transformed to look more abstract. A good deal of glass, steel, and new details were used to completely reinvent the home.
The roof begins to dissolve at the top right hand corner–this part of the roof is made of slatted wood, and houses the glass chimney. It was purposefully designed this way to further connect the house to the natural world around it.
Though more modern, the interior design still retains the coziness of a vacation getaway home by the lake.
A few hints or elements of the traditional lakehouse still remain in the house. The kitchen, while streamlined, is furnished with dark, rich mahogany cabinetry.
The modern and sleek open kitchen and dining area.
The severely simple dining area offers the opportunity for tranquil evening meals.
A pool nearly surrounds the entire house, hence the name “Peninsula House.” The expansive glass doors can be slid open, and one can literally walk out from the living room and into the calm and modern pool for a quick, refreshing dip.
A pool, solarium, and vegetative roof were added to meld with the natural surroundings.
A modern balcony, surrounded by green plants, is even more exposed to the natural world right in front of the house with the use of glass panels.
This is the red and wood furnished reading room of the house.
Even the restroom offers views of the outdoors.
Color, reflection (from both the materials and the surrounding pool), and geometry was incorporated into the design as much as possible, in order to bring natural light deep into the house.
