| CHARETTE | CONTEMPORARY REDESIGN OF A 1960’s HOUSE
Status Budget Under Review Site: Lake Monticello, VA
Program: Single-Family Residential Size: 4,800 SF
DESCRIPTION Located on an acre lot alongside Lake Monticello’s waterfront sits a contemporary residence that takes advantage of seamless views towards the water. The house utilizes an exterior curtainwall insulated glass system alongside the North façade, while the remaining sides use sturdy concrete walls that provide thermal insulation.
The home is separated from a garage and music studio by two cross bridges that bring the occupants outside before they transition into the adjacent spaces. This middle zone is lush with coniferous flora for year-round vegetation that serves as an natural buffer from the various programmatic zones of the home. Both pieces of the architecture allow for roof access where green spaces can be enjoyed alongside the magnificent views outward to the lake and surrounding countryside.
This project was completed in a 48 hour charrette that included sketching, 3D modeling and high-quality render production.
