We would love to hear what you think about the Lakeshore House by Archibald Buro so don’t be shy and share your opinion in the comments section below. This luxurious Copenhagen Apartment on the top floor of a centrally situated 1882 apartment building is today’s dream home choice.
The house is built 7 metres below road level such that the roof acts as a parking lot for 3 cars. The ‘Lighthouse’ gains its name from the fact that it is accessed via an illuminated glass cube that tops a concrete stair core.
The house has a spiral structure with its origin at the central courtyard offering varying degrees of privacy. The bedroom and the bathroom are situated behind the courtyard whereas the kitchen and living area are placed around the garage as you look from the entrance.
The house borders the 160-acre Rio Grande Nature Centre to the south and Rio Grande River Corridor to the west. As the name indicates the house is near to wildfowl locale that host snow geese sand hill cranes and many red-listed birds.
The building is designed to get maximum exposure to sunlight and passive ventilation. The site allows a fantastic view to wildfowl habitat and materials including glasses are so selected to give an elegant look to this contemporary design.
