Postmodern Lakefront Style
Combining modern, open floor plan design with natural materials requires skill and an eye for detail. From the lapped corners on the siding to the durable galvalum roofing, the outdoors truly come inside in this South Shore Custom Home on Delavan Lake, Wisconsin. The deck features an integrated pool that disappears from sight as you gaze at the beautiful lake views.
Kitchen and Dining Room
With a large extended family, this kitchen is the heartbeat of the open-concept living area. As elsewhere in this home, the division between outside and in practically disappears-and nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen.
One of the challenges presented by open floor plans is differentiating spaces within larger areas while maintaining a comfortable traffic flow. Contemporary design is frequently cold or sterile-feeling. Not so this South Shore Custom Home: color and natural material selection creates a warm, inviting space reminiscent of the best Scandinavian designs.
Since this home is frequented by guests, the owner wanted to make sure that visitors were able to enjoy a secluded experience during their stay. To achieve this, the bedrooms face away from the lake, into the surrounding hardwood forest. The effect is one in which each bedroom feels like its own wilderness sanctuary-truly a unique, comfortable experience!
