The Peninsula Residence was designed by Bercy Chen Studio and has a privileged location that allows beautiful vies of Lake Austin, Texas. You are looking at a makeover of an 1980’s home which initially did not take advantage of the positive features of its environment. Here are a few words from the architects: “The challenge was to develop a sensitive and inventive result out of a pre-existing condition. Through the use of glass, steel, detailing and light the home has been adaptively reinvented. Reflection, translucency, color and geometry conspire to bring natural light deep into the house. A new solarium, pool, and vegetative roof are tuned to interact with the natural context. Exterior materials and refined detailing of the roof structure give the volume clean lines and a bold presence, while abstracting the form of the original dormers and gable roof.” The interior design is diverse, with plenty of inspiring details. A generous pool contributes to the overall game of form that this residence plays and offers a unique relaxation spot right next to the lake.
