Created in 2016 by Lake Flato Architects, this inspiring lake property is situated in Marble Falls, Texas, United States.

Description by Lake Flato Architects

Responding initially to the site’s steeply increasing topography, a vertically structured home reveals itself as the clear design and style for this lake property. Leveraging the home&#8217s tall stature, living spaces culminate at the prime floor, set just above the tree line and delivering practically a 180 degree view of the lake beyond. The third floor north facing glazed wall provides unobstructed views of the lake, while punched openings give glimpses of the rugged hillside behind, showcasing the counterpointed landscapes. Emphasizing the site’s two uniquely juxtaposed landforms — water and rugged hillside — the third floor&#8217s cantilevered deck reaches out toward the lake while a bridge anchors into the hillside, connecting the property to its surrounding landscape. 4 separate bedroom retreats are tucked under on the decrease two floors. All circulation runs exterior, allowing its guests to further immersion into the outdoors and an appreciation for leaving the city behind to enjoy a weekend getaway.
