Designed by Alterstudio Architecture, the Lake View Residence sits amongst live oaks and connects its residence to the surrounding landscape through the use of a window wall and skylights, dynamic spatial transitions that optimize cross ventilation, FSC-certified woods (mahogany cabinetry and longleaf pine floors).

Sustainable features include tankless water heaters, reflective TPO roofing, a photovoltaic array, geothermal HVAC systems,  cellular foam insulation, and the use of reclaimed woods.
