Situated on a rarified lot overlooking Lake Calhoun, this modern Mediterranean offers an urban yet tranquil lake life for the professional homeowners. Uniquely positioned on an elevated water table, we were tasked to design the home with a main floor nearly six feet above grade. Capturing the magnificent city lake views drove the room plans throughout the home. Nearly each room is positioned to enjoy the lake. The classic Mediterranean architecture shell has a highly modernized interior as revealed in the “glass box” living room. Three pairs of nine-foot foot glass doors envelope the main living area allowing for a flood of natural light and a sense of limitless space throughout the main floor. Peace and tranquility is offered through the windows of both “His and Hers” lake-facing office suites. Several terrace spaces have been developed for the couple to blend indoor and outdoor life.
