JHID team members for the Winter Park Lake House were senior designer Alisha Borden, Mariah Hum, and Natalie Nicholson.

In a neighborhood full of rather imposing houses, the view of this one from the street is a field of grasses, an entry court of sparkling white seashells, a low, vine-covered white wall with a sculptural branch growing unpredictably right through it, and a sliver of view over the wall, through the house, to the lake. Subtle, minimal, mysterious, and elegant. And that’s just the beginning.
