The Horseshoe Bay house is a symbiotic blend of casual lake living with an over-arching aesthetic that is at once vernacular and sophisticated. Rough materials were reinvented and crafted to blend these notions. Site slope was a major factor in the overall design and site plan of the house.

A series of terraced living spaces was carefully fitted into the landscape to react both to the house and to the terrain. It was important not to block any of the lake view but still minimally impact the steep site. The main house opens up to the terraced outdoor living areas and the series of porches adjacent. A bridge connects the house and upper lawn areas to the boathouse in both a dramatic and functional response.
