Aqua Verde Residence / Clark Richardson Architects

The existing home was a brick and stucco two-story residence and was wrapped in heavy masonry porches on both the front and rear of the residence which faces the view. The interiors of the home, which had undergone a few interior renovations since being built, were somewhat jumbled with a series of disconnected living spaces and perhaps most importantly little to no positive connection to the amazing views beyond the property. Windows to the lake view were sparse and further separated from the outdoors by the heavy masonry colonnades to each side of the home.
