A family whose life centers around the growing, selling, cooking and serving of food revels in the sublime location and contemporary sensibilities of their new lakefront home that celebrates the social importance of food in our lives.
Enormous walls of glass merge the stunning interior with the beuatiful surroundings and expansive views to the lakefront.
A series of shed roofed forms beckons towards the grand but protected entry that hints at what is to come...
The simple forms establish a calm order to a complex exterior.
A stunning space and view to match greet visitors at the entry. The main vaulted space is anchored by a massive oak slab dining table and an expansive 15 foot wide by 20 foot tall horizontally pivoting door that forms a canopy over the movable table.
Let the show begin…
Architectural elements celebrate the serving and sharing of food and form a grand space simultaneously intimate and special.
“Each morning we come down stairs… it seems like we're still dreaming, the whole house is so incredible to live in!”
—The Home Owner, Leslie, quoted shortly after moving in
The serious working cook's full–featured kitchen becomes a stage where the chef and assistants put on a show for guests.
Natrual light floods the kitchen and great room.
A gracious sitting area flanks the main vaulted dining space.
The linkage that operates the door is a work of art in its own right.
