Austin Lake House photo by Mike Osborne

The project begins with a 1980’s home-builder house fronting on lake austin. The original design did not harness views to the lake and Mount Bonnell, nor did it respect the ecological sensitivity of its site.

The challenge was to develop a sensitive and inventive result out of a pre-existing condition. Through the use of glass, steel, detailing and light the home has been adaptively reinvented.

Reflection, translucency, color and geometry conspire to bring natural light deep into the house. A new solarium, pool, and vegetative roof are tuned to interact with the natural context.

Exterior materials and refined detailing of the roof structure give the volume clean lines and a bold presence, while abstracting the form of the original dormers and gable roof.

Further connecting the home to its site, the roof begins to dissolve where a glass clad chimney and slatted wood screen stand in relief against the sky.

Blue + white bedroom: Benjamin Moore "Starry Night Blue"

David Jimenez, a vice president at Hallmark and an interior designer, painted the small guest bedroom of his Kansas City home a deep blue, Benjamin Moore's Starry Night Blue. The sleigh bed is from Ralph Lauren and the desk lamp, used here as a bedside lamp, is from Restoration Hardware.

Painted floors: Benjamin Moore 'Narragansett Green'

In this lake cottage in western Connecticut, architect Gil Schafer converted an open porch to a screened porch and, next to it, a dining room. Color expert Eve Ashcraft chose Narragansett Green for the porch floor and Stonington Gray for the ceiling, both from Benjamin Moore.
