LAKE EDGE DRIVE // ZERO3
7019 Lake Edge Drive is a soft spoken, understated, contemporary house located in the Lake Forest gated community of Dallas. It is a home that is able to maintain the integrity of its contemporary design aesthetic, yet complement the more traditional surroundings of this established neighborhood.
The Lake Edge Drive home is all about the art. It was designed to feature the contemporary art collection acquired by the owners, one piece per year, over their 30 plus years of marriage. Through the strategic placement of floating walls, room openings, and controlled views, the art is seamlessly integrated into the living spaces of the home. Because of its central courtyard layout, the home is full of natural light during the day, which highlights the transparency and form of the many glass sculpture pieces. At night it is pleasantly transparent, so that art may be viewed across the courtyard and enjoyed from several rooms at a time.
The Lake Edge Drive home integrates art, form and function, technology and nature to provide its owners with a peaceful, serene, yet stimulating environment for living. It is a home worth viewing.
