The house is positioned perfectly on a “peninsula” shaped lot to maximize the waterfront on 3 sides of the house. The incorporation of huge glass expanses and indoor/ outdoor space help define the client’s design intent of an “island-ey”, comfortable, modern home with a touch of “glam!”. We used white with bright color, rock crystal, glass, and organic forms and luxurious materials to create this environment for our client.
In a pretty dramatic shift from the Fillers’ former home, which was much more mountain cabin in design and feel, the new home took a much more modern approach with organic/rustic elements.

Hence, there was a “switching gears” of designing for a primary home to a vacation home. There was also a challenge to use their art collection to determine the color pallet. This was a challenge, because the design team was using photos as opposed to seeing the art in person.
