Featured Project Name: 

BW164 House

 

Featured Project Location: 

Omaha, Nebraska

 

Featured Project Completion Date: 

2019

Role in Featured Project: 

Project Architect/ Designer

Featured Project Description:

The BW164 house rests on a flat deep lake lot in rural NE. The house is used for living and entertaining so we programmed space around a central public zone which utilizes transparency toward the shoreline to create an indoor / outdoor relationship with the site. Private spaces share a relationship with the outer perimeter of the program to provide retreat from the public core.
