Sanctuary: Gorgeous Contemporary Waterfront Home in Louisiana





Architect
Mike McSwain

Project Name
Sanctuary

Project Description
10,000 sq ft contemporary waterfront home in Louisiana completed December 2008.

Rooms
Three bedrooms suites each w/ full bath; two additional half baths, living room; dining room; his and her offices; conference room; game room; fitness room; custom eat-in kitchen; large den with outdoor kitchen; craft room; electrical room.

Construction Highlights

+ The house is comprised of a yin and yang of materials…smooth and rough, contemporary and classic, shiny and dull.

+ Exterior cladding is a combination of long black brick, clear anodized aluminum columns and curtain wall of clear low-e insulated glazing panels.

+ The exterior is a special blend of surfacing with large horizontal reveals and wood.

+ Roof is entirely custom, continuous arched metal roof panels (continuous segments – seamless strips).

+ 26 different types of stone, all handpicked by the owner.

+ All tile is glass or custom stone.

Exterior Highlights

+ Water in front and back consisting of a shallow cypress tree lake in the rear and large pond in front.

+ The pond contains a sculptured pavilion which matches the geometry of the house and is framed by a concrete stacked archway when viewed from the front door.

+ Front entryway is a granite slab bridge over a reflecting pool with aluminum columns rising out of the water – illuminated at night.

+ It leads to a large, frame-less double glass front door with custom stainless handles – through the door one sees the sunken living room and the lake through the back glass wall.

+ Large in ground pool is in the front of the house with an infinite edge hot tub and reflecting pond with water cascading over stacked slate into a bed of black river rock.

+ Rear of house has two decks. The upper deck (called the party deck) is made from Brazilian hardwood with black slate bamboo lighted planters along the exterior. The deck is adjacent to a well equipped outdoor kitchen / seating area that connects to the family room with retractable glass walls.

+ The lower deck is covered and overlooks the elevated lawn down to the lake.

+ The large lawn contains a fire pit with bench seating.

Interior Highlights

+ Dramatic lighted, water element entrance with 30’ suspended ovoid limestone clad chimney over fire ribbon fireplace set in recessed bed of black river rock form an interior entryway vestibule inside the front doors.

+ Behind the chimney is the sunken living room and wall of glass overlooking the lake.

+ The living / dining / office area have large arched linear glue lam beams on aluminum columns.

+ Floating wood slats ceiling panels and two flanking vertical planes of limestone contrast with the curtain wall on the other sides.

+ Gourmet kitchen equipped with state of the art appliances including a custom hood, built in espresso maker, refrigerator, refrigerator drawers, dishwashers, double ovens and range.

+ Outdoor kitchen and den area complete with air conditioning and electronic phantom screens to close entire area.

+ Nanowalls, glass walls that completely retract to allow for a full, large opening, connects the den area to an outdoor kitchen and seating area.

+ Programmable lighting, indoor and outdoor.

+ Home automation system for air control, sound, window coverings, lighting, water systems, pools and security.

+ Complete Movie Theater with editing station and full movie making capabilities.

+ Sound system throughout the house.

Is that even possible? Absolutely, there you have it. As expected, based on the facts presented in relation to Juggernox, you're out of luck. What kind of knowledge do you need?

If there is anything I've discovered recently it is that everybody has their own likes and dislikes when it is put alongside Juggernox because I would recommend you imagine about bringing your Juggernox into the process. >>>http://www.kingsizemaleenhancements.com/juggernox/
