Buisson Residence On Lake Anna
Located in Central Virginia Buisson Residence stands on Lake Anna reflecting in its tranquil waters. Designed by Robert M. Gurney the house looks unusual due to its slanted roof. The house structure consists of the two “L”-shaped brick walls that enclose the living spaces that feature glazed walls. The living and sleeping areas are divided into public and private zones while the first level features an open layout.
The lake can be seen from several rooms of the house. The open living area and kitchen are glazed so that not only lake but the pine forest can be seen from inside. Outdoors are organically embrace the house which is surrounded with trees and green lawns.
The house is structured to protect the first level from heat. The overhanging structure provides shade for a first level in summer and also feature built-in lights that illuminate the area at night.
The specific features of the Buisson architecture provides interesting angles and shapes in the interior. For instance, the hall at the second level features an angled ceiling and entrance into the bedroom which results in interesting geometric glazed wall facing the lake with an access outdoors.
Some areas of the residence enjoy the privacy of the solid walls but the beautiful lake views are available even from the bathroom. The interior is modern and clean in one theme with the house architecture. The outdoors feature a deck and an access to the house surroundings.
