This contemporary lake house is located in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, and so enjoys sweeping views of Lake Lyndon B. Johnson and the Colorado River. The home was designed by architect Jay Corder to be a symbiotic blend of casual lake living with a sophisticated aesthetic.
The site's slope was a major factor in the overall design and plan of the house, as the architects wanted to preserve the lake views without disrupting the landscape. Thus, the team carefully fitted a series of terraced living spaces into the terrain, which allow the owners to enjoy the water but have minimal impact on the setting.
