Coastal Clarity: Envisioning an Airy Lakeside Home
Even the most wayward projects can have a happy ending. A desperate family recruited BPC for a rescue mission of the highest order. After struggling to make headway with their previous architect, the owners of a picturesque lakeside property needed a dedicated team to help them realize their vision of a familial destination.
Their dream was simple yet ambitious: to build a sprawling home that could serve as the perfect getaway for their family and friends. As the walls of the original architect’s layout had already been framed in, our challenge was to realign the design with the homeowners’ goals, within the existing constraints.
This was no small feat for an 8,000 sq. ft. home. Our work included re-selecting exterior materials, improving the floor plan’s functionality, and creating an aesthetic woven between Cape Cod and French Country styles. One of the priorities was optimizing the home’s view of the water, enabling the light, aromas, and essence of the lake to permeate the interior. We achieved this by designing the home’s lake-facing exterior to consist almost fully of glass.
Throughout the home’s eight bedrooms, ten bathrooms, two kitchens, and other rooms, thoughtful design makes these spaces feel wholesome and comforting. Elements include subtle details such as stone tiling and varied wood panelling, along with showstoppers like a grand fireplace whose stone mantle reaches all the way up to a vaulted ceiling.
Now, on a clear, calm night, this home’s reflection can be seen dancing upon the waters of Lake Okoboji. This home stands as a invitation, beckoning guests to come enjoy its sweeping scenery and welcoming spirit.
