What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tune In to the Music of Architecture
Sforzando. Architecturally and musically loud, strong and with force. It can be a roof that's lit for emphasis and then extends out into space aggressively, having all the characteristics of a musical passage that's played sforzando.

Steel columns add strenght and longevity look. Good alternative to wood. Like the angled deck that could be used as large balcony from master suite and overhang for carport below. Would extend it to (deck) north face as this is where the view is. Would be used to accent front door . Extended deck to back to allow for shade on south side by the pol.

The home is located on the edge of a lagoon on Kiawah Island in South Carolina's Lowcountry. Built four years ago and sized at 4,200 square feet, the house features a large great room overlooking the lagoon. A desire to maximize those lagoon views while ensuring the structure could withstand hurricanes and earthquakes drove the home's design. The extensive use of glass on the back side of the home captures these views while the front is a bit more traditional in design.

Recently the Wall Street Journal selected the "Lips Room" house on Kiawah Island by architect and Houzzer Christopher Rose as its House of the Day. To be sure, with its expansive walls of glass and high-tech-meets-Lowcountry feel, we're not surprised. The home is located on the edge of a lagoon on Kiawah Island in South Carolina's Lowcountry. Built four years ago and sized at 4,200 square feet, the house features a large great room overlooking the lagoon. A desire to maximize those lagoon views while ensuring the structure could withstand hurricanes and earthquakes drove the home's design. The extensive use of glass on the back side of the home captures these views while the front is a bit more traditional in design. In fact, according to Rose, the client insisted on making the house in general and the great room in particular as transparent as possible. The client was all for it when Rose suggested the use of an exposed steel frame to accomplish this goal. This led both architect and client down the path to an exciting and light filled home that embraces its setting. Why is it called the "Lips Room" house? Read on.
