Architecture Design of The Point House
Description About The Project
The Point House designed by Kor Architects is a stunning new lakeside home in Washington State that uses materials like wood, stone, concrete, and steel, as well as a series of water features. For this house, the connection to nature heightened by a series of water features, which flow under the building into a large architectonic feature made to resemble a native pond adjacent to the lake. Also, terraces adjacent to the living spaces, a hidden path to the lake shore, and two outdoor rooms with fire pits further integrate the building into the site. In addition to this, energy – efficient insulation, windows, geothermal heating, and natural in – place filtration beds in the water features reduce the impact on the site.
Indeed, the design of the home includes various water features. The first water feature can be seen at the front of the house, where it guides to the front door. Other water features, which feature around the exterior of the home, also flow beneath some parts of the building, where they meet up with large stepping platforms.
Complementing the water features are the outdoor living areas that have views of the lake. And include steps with hidden lighting, large built – in concrete plants, and a lounge area with a fire pit. The architects worked with Ohashi Landscape Services to complete the outdoor spaces.
Once insides, the interiors of the home, which designed in collaboration with Barbara Leland Interior Design, are filled with natural light from the floor – to – ceiling windows.

Text by the Architects: A family home – The Point house that blurs the distinction between interior and exterior space through its unique connection to the natural landscape. A set of three pavilions, connected by a north-south spine, allow for different levels of privacy, while a simple palette of wood, stone, concrete, and steel allows the architecture to recede and let nature take center stage.
