Breathtaking modern lake house
The Peninsula Residence was designed by Bercy Chen Studio and has a privileged location that allows beautiful views of Lake Austin, Texas. This is a remodel of a 1980’s home which initially did not take advantage of the views to the lake and Mount Bonnell, nor did it respect the ecological sensitivity of its site. 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.
