House With a Big Yard and a Four-Car Garage On a Relatively Small Lot

The Lakes Residence is designed by Architekton for a family of four. It is the 3,500 square feet home that occupied a relatively small lot of about 65′ x 125′. Inspire of that there is a quite big exterior yard with a pool and the adjacent lake near by. The house has two levels with a footprint of about 25′ x 55′. Its shape is quite simple but it features all necessary living areas and four-car garage. One part of the house is cpu clad while others are clad in various materials such as bamboo and translucent glass. There is also a wrapping envelope that emerges from the ground and ends as an indirect light fixture illuminating the great room and entry. This wrapper is opaque on the east and west and provides a deep roof overhang on the south. The form is three feet thick which allows for structure, storage and utilities. When weather inspires, the home’s main living space’s north and south large sliding glass walls open for true indoor/outdoor comfort and enjoyment of the inherent evaporative cooling from the lake and the pool.
