Lake Residence by Architekton
Architekton has built a Lake Residence in Tempe, Arizona. This residence was specifically designed for a family of four in one of the first lake communities in Arizona. The project’s goal was to create a livable, sustainable contemporary home, which could evolve over the family’s lifetime. Flexibility was also integrated into the house layout and construction to eliminate the need for external expansion.
The home’s main living space’s north and south sliding glass walls can be opened to enjoy the cool breeze from the adjacent lake and pool when the weather allows so.
From the architects: “The 21st century ecologically sensitive Lake residence designed by Architekton is sympathetic to its 20th Century neighbors and is a mix of reverence and daring. The 3,500 sf home was specifically designed for a family of four (and two beagles and a cat) on an 8,200 sf lot in the first lake community in Arizona. The new home was built on the last vacant lot in the 30-year-old Lakes Neighborhood in Tempe Arizona. The site was chosen for its’ views, north-south orientation, quality of schools and close proximity the family’s places of work. The goal was to create a livable, sustainable contemporary home, which could evolve over the family’s lifetime.”
