Houses Near The Lake
Casa en el Bosque
Casa en el Bosque or House in the Forest was designed by Parque Humano. The site preserving architecture of the house features holes for the saved trees that grow in the area. The house consists of two pavilions one of which is bigger and includes living and dining areas, a kitchen and a working studio while the other one has two bedrooms. The house also has a reflecting pool and beautiful views of the lake thanks to glass walls.
Cliff House by Altius Architecture is a cottage that was built on the cliff using the local granite as its base. The house includes all the necessities and opens up to the lake views thanks to glass walls.
Elenko Residence designed by CEI Architecture is a modern building that stands on the lake with a rocky shore. The two-story house includes living area, dining room and kitchen as well as guest bedroom and washroom located on the ground floor and bedrooms on the second floor.
Casa S by Alric Galindez Architects has an interesting architecture thanks to the stone blocks it consists of that were arranged together to create a connected living space. Thus each of the stone block can be used independently from the house and act as one of the house’s areas. The stone structure perfectly fits the sight that overlooks the lake and opens up to the beautiful views of the lake surrounded by mountains.
Lake LBJ Retreat
Designed by Dick Clark Architecture this Lake LBJ Retreat has a complex structure but opens up to the lake and features a terrace that faces the lake and provides space for seating and enjoying the view.
The Walensee House
The Walensee House by K_M Architektur stands a bit above the lake on the slope of the hill which allows the owners enjoy quite a view with the green lake surrounded by a wall of mountains. Breathtaking!
We also covered the O House by Philippe Stuebi with Eberhard Tröger a while back. The perforated facade of the house gives it an interesting look while the living room and bedroom open up to the lake. See more pictures here.
Flowing Lake Residence
Flowing Lake Residence by David Vandervort Architects is located in the forested sight overlooking the lake. Thanks to glass walls the house has a great view of the lake and also a path that leads to it.
