Lakeside Home by Spado Architects:
“The extension to a lakeside residential house, comprising 3 storeys in all, plays on the shape of the landscape and nestles into the steep slope that runs from south to north down to the lake.
Facing the lake, it generates 3 all-glass residential storeys with the kitchen enthroned at their centre, like the command bridge of a ship.
The projections and recesses lend the extension a feeling of lightness, producing roofed outdoors places and also producing every single of the 3 storeys stand out visually. The kitchen faces east, with its distinctive “eye”, obtaining the morning sun.
The facade is covered with opaque white glass panels, contrasting in spots with high-gloss black glass aspects.
A house on a lake is generally aligned with the views of the lake. Although facades which face northwards to the lake may possibly appear unfavourable at 1st glance, their positive aspects turn into clear in summer season. There’s no need to set up any shades and they by no means get more than-heated. In this context, north-facing walls are ideal when you have all-glass facades. The lake gets to be the primary protagonist.”1st Degree
