Exterior View of Home Made From Wood, Stone and Glass
This home exterior looks great in the evening light thanks to an expansive wall of windows that also affords residents a great view. The exterior includes wood siding, stone and glass to complement the look of the surrounding mountain landscape.
This award-winning lake house was built on a small island in Canada. Perched overlooking a lake, the home was designed to take in the views with sprawling porches, a private balcony and an inviting gazebo.
This home incorporates many unique design elements, but perhaps the aspect that captures the most attention is the expansive garage that spans the entire ground floor. Extensive landscaping was employed to complete the project, including solid rock retaining walls, iron fences and fountains throughout the property.
Although most homeowners plan their home's exterior lighting scheme to illuminate after dark, there's an entirely different vibe created when lights are turned on at sunset. After dark, the lights are the main source of illumination around the home, whereas during sundown, string lights simply add a subtle glow around the roof, eaves and railings. We love this!
The owners of this Keck & Keck-designed ranch house wanted to add a second story. To keep its original aesthetic while expanding it, the renovation maintained the beams and passive solar features such as large soffits and window placement as well as the home's strong horizontal lines, volumetric squared masses and stacking square and rectangular forms.
