Building Type :    Residential Single-Family     

Status :                Completed                                                                                                                   

Project Scope :    Extensive remodeling of the existing 2-story residence with integrated lake views with the goal to create the pool and cabana as one integrated                                   experience and structure to better unify the yards and main house with the adjoining lake. The Cabana is a 2300 SF bridge building spanning                                       76' along and across the main pool to shaded outdoor dining, bars and lounge areas along the pool as well as frame and align the best perspective                             views from the main house out along the grand infinity pool’s main axis, to the estate’s lake beyond. The Cabana includes a window walled party                                 room, summer kitchen, bar, bath and surrounding covered terraces under expansive roof and trellis overhangs. All facades and flat roof of the                                     concrete frame structure is finished with natural composite wood board Resysta and stained a Burmese teak color. The inclined wall columns and                               roof soffits frame the viewing axis from the main house out to the lake and create a sculptural finish and refined profile to the living space in the                                     landscape. The fully automated, 4000 SF raised infinity edge pool is ‘L’ shaped and wraps around the Cabana to form a shallow wet beach area of                               blue and gold glass tiles with the ‘floating’ jacuzzi spa. The 100' main exercise pool oriented towards the lake, culminates on a 4 fountain jet basin                               and waterfall. Imported silver-grey limestone terraces, integrated landscaping, scene set lighting, and surround sound complete the composition
