A wood such as mahogany and a rough-hewn basalt wall of cherry, adds warmth to nearly every space in this luxury home. A strategically conceived floor plan beginning in the kitchen contributes to the house’s railing contrast with the feeling of unity.
This Wyoming home sits in a natural clearing of a huge grove of aspen trees on a low lying lot situated between the Teton Range and the Snake River. A sluiceway, reminiscent of irrigation canals, brings water around the house, where an open porch is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.
Situated against the side of the house and running the entire length of the residence is this sleek pool concept designed by Lake Flato Architects that reflects the intimacy of the water canals of Venice.
The house sits right on the canals of Ventura, California and has its own dock with room for two boats. Every aspect of the design places emphasis on the view; the entire back wall is glass and steel with a large patio that extends to the water's edge.
Sluiceways, reminiscent of irrigation canals, surround the open porch, channeling water from the pools next to the barn to the ponds in front of the house. The Wyoming home is built in a natural clearing of aspen trees, which are also used as part of the porch design.
The landscape design of this Wyoming home utilizes water as the primary component in the form of a series of ponds that thread their way through the site and house floor plan. A body of water surrounds the spa and is confined on all sides by man-made edges. It is channeled into a sluiceway, reminiscent of irrigation canals, to flow around the house and recycled back to the front pond.
