A Peninsula House on Lake Austin, Texas

What do you get when you combine a contemporary design studio like Bercy Chen Studio with a traditional, 1980's lakehouse right on Lake Austin? A spectacular vacation home with breathtaking views, that includes the best of both worlds--that is the comforts of a traditional lakehouse with the relaxing powers of modern design. The original home was built in the 1980's and to Bercy Chen Studio's disappointment, did not take advantage of the spectacular lake views just feet away from the house! That is why large glass windows, spanning from the ceiling to the floor, were installed around the entire house--to allow as much of the beautiful view in as possible. The previous house also did not respect or pay too much mind to the nature around it--but Bercy Chen made sure to change all of that with their remodel! http://vimeo.com/8042020
