Anna’s Pick of the Week

1 Mar


This weeks pick comes from Anna, one of EDG’s newer designers who is typically inspired by the world around her. This week Anna was feeling inspired by the return of spring and bringing the outdoors in, this being said Anna chose “The Lake House” by Mark Dziewulski Architects.
The lake house is 8,694 square feet of concrete, steel and glass. It took four years to complete this stunning residence and the architects designed the five stories in such a manner that the light-flooded interior spaces get the best views from the nearby Lake Tahoe. The Lake house also features four bedrooms, four baths, on a half acre property including a private pier. Stand out elements in this home would be a glass elevator and stairwell. While this was a four year build with a heavy financial commitment once the Lake House was built the inspiration comes free.
Anna chose the lake house based on its unusual and dynamic elements. Anna particularly liked how the home is completely modern but by using walls of glass the homeowner is living in nature as well. In addition, Anna felt this home is the perfect balance of design and simplicity. Finally, nature provides an ever changing color scheme that the homeowner should look forward to what each season brings.
