Lotus Lakeview Home
Project Description
The powder room features granite counter and backsplash in rich colors, and complimentary faux painted walls, which add depth and interest.
The dining room is open to the great room and the sweeping views beyond, while interior columns and soffit help to denote the space.
The entry is part of a vaulted gallery space, and well as longer views through the house to the living spaces beyond. The floating wood stair rail provides a beautiful ledge for sculpture, and the glass panels below let ample light and views filter through.
The curving deck and corresponding fan shaped arbor above take full advantage of the sites sweeping views.
The curved glass wall of the great room takes advantage of panoramic views and adds to the dynamic feel of the home. The custom curved transom window above with a special art glass panel, infuse the vaulted space with additional light.
Looking back in the house, one sees how the dining, living, and kitchen spaces all flow together. The open vaulted spaces are defined with soffits and columns.
The richly detailed fireplace with its faux painted flanking piers and granite surround, give the great room an interesting focal point. The see through fireplace and glass panels above, add to the homes spacious feel.
The delicate custom metal and wood railing contrasts nicely with the masonry piers, which anchor the home to its sloping site.
Tall pine trees on the northeast shelter the home and create privacy for the site, while the grade gradually slopes off to the southwest where the panoramic views open up. The parallel gables on the front form a rhythmic façade.
The curved glass wall in the great room adds interest to the rear façade. The curve is continued through the arc of the master bath bay with its five high windows surrounding the tub. The curved theme is also seen in elevation in the arched transom. Exterior finishes of stucco, cedar siding, cedar shingles, and masonry all blend well together.
The lower level theater space features a tray ceiling with indirect lighting. The bar area connected, yet off to one side, has a mirrored back wall and glass display shelves to allow more light to filter in. The bar itself, has a floating wood slab counter allowing the floor material to go through and gives it a more open feel.
