    Default Savoring the life aquatic


    On a scenic reservoir of the Colorado River in Austin, Texas, Ted Flato, of the architectural firm Lake/Flato, designed a 6,000-square-foot modern village—three guesthouses and a main house—for his clients that appears to float on water. “I wanted to evoke a fishing camp’s casual feeling,” says Flato.

    I love the library. The rest isn't too bad. So much glass, thank God there aren't any neighbors nearby.

    No, too much glass, too exposed.

    3 Guest Houses and a Main House that all have zero privacy. Duh.

    love it except for the dining room furniture but that would be easy to change.

    I don't think the architect was really inspired, the part with a cathedral ceiling is too high and narrow, the dining room is too enclosed, it's not well planned

    It would be a great spot to vacation but not live in imo.

    ^^ Agreed.

    It kind of reminds me of the Keanu movie The Lake House

    myeah, i sort of feel the same way. it seems to me that too much thought went into certain parts of the house and he overdid those somehow.

    i do love most of the furniture. the outside is fantastic, too.
