Fontana Lake House
AIA North Carolina > Residential Design Awards > New Construction
- AIA NC Merit
Location: Bryson City, North Carolina
This LEED Gold certified house is located at Fontana Lake in Western North Carolina, quite near the water. Our clients sought this lake front location to enjoy lake activities, so being close to the water was a must. The house was carefully sited to minimize the visibility of the house from the lake. Very few trees were removed, making it nearly invisible from the lake, despite being the closest to the water. The understated exterior massing and palette of colors and materials were selected to blend the house into the wooded hillside.
