Modern House Opened to Beautiful Outdoors, Spectacular Glass and Wood Design
Wooden ceiling and black accent wall, modern living room design with spectacular glass elements
The Scout Lake Residence overlooks Ames Lake, where a Boy Scout camp once was. The idyllic location provides beautiful views and characterizes the modern house design. The forest surrounds the perfect contemporary home for a family with two young children and sits on the property close to the water’s edge. Stephenson Design Collective designed this 3,900-square-foot modern house inspired by how campsites gently interact with their natural surroundings.
The modern house design blends stunning glass, concrete, and wood elements harmoniously blending with surrounding forests and emphasizes the homeowner’s Danish heritage. The house exterior is spectacular, and stylish interiors with lake views provide comfortable and contemporary living spaces.
Glass and wood house design
The glass home interiors are connected by a suspended bridge, visually opening the spaces to the outdoors. Double-height ceiling and glass wall designs create a bright, modern house decorated with stylish furnishings. Large sliding glass doors reveal gorgeous lake views and mature trees around the home.
A blackened steel wall in the living room creates a dramatic focal point. A three-sided fireplace enhances the beauty and brings a cozy feel to the modern interior design. White-oak kitchen cabinets and large windows that frame forest views fill the kitchen with light and natural beauty.
