Text description provided by the architects. This project is born with 3 basic principles, LIGHT, VIEW, and SPACE.

The house is planned to be a 1 level construction and the main desire is to catch the views from the lake, in order to achieve that, the site was needed to be elevated approximately 18 feet above the initial level.

The materials and finishes in this project are mainly from the area and a certain balance is always taken in consideration. High ceilings, open spaces and great views are few of the qualities of the house.

The main areas of this house are located at the center, in order to connect all the spaces and make a good circulation flow. These areas make the soul of the house, achieving an harmonious open space that merges the beauty of the lake views and the mountains.
