In keeping with the home’s nautical theme, the client envisioned an executive office that would draw on his appreciation for historic lighthouses and classic Chris-Craft “woodies.” It needed to incorporate millwork that evokes fine boatbuilding and a reproduced Fresnel lens chandelier that could shine out onto the lake. A wraparound desk and open shelving presented the big challenge.
The screen porch provides a sheltered, bug-free alternative to the open porch and pergola-topped deck that flank the pool. The upper-level office is accessible through a private stairway from the kitchen and from the walk-through closet in the master bedroom. Horizontal lines visually match those of the main house despite many curved surfaces, enabling the addition to blend seamlessly.
