Horseshoe Bay Lakehouse Exterior

As a vacation home with an amazing locale, this home was designed with one primary focus: utilizing the breathtaking lake views. The original lot was a small island pie-shaped lot with spectacular views of Lake LBJ. Each room was created to depict a different snapshot of the lake due to the ratcheting footprint. Double 8’x11’ tall sliding glass doors merge the indoor living to the outdoor living, thus creating a seamless flow from inside to outside. The swimming pool, with its vanishing edge, was designed in such a way that it brings the lake right up to the outside living terrace, giving the feeling of actually being in the lake. There is also a twelve foot beach area under the archways of the pool’s water features for relaxing and entertaining. The beauty of the home is enough to stand alone, but being on the lake as it is makes the entire design come together as a truly stunning vacation home.
