Patrick Farley Architect

Lakeview House

Richmond, Virginia

Carefully fit to a narrow lot, this home overlooks a lake in the City's most popular public park within a neighborhood characterized by eclectic architecture. Along a busy thoroughfare, the living spaces are elevated above the street while cantilevering nearly 10 feet, intensifying the experience and connections to the green space.  The material palette comprises corrugated metal cladding, stucco, cypress and a roman blue-black brick that expresses an intentional departure from the traditional red brick that defines Richmond.  Though subtle, the building's proportioning system harmonizes with the scale and mass of adjacent older homes.
