BACA Architects has revealed designs for a £1.6 million waterfront escape, the latest addition to luxury Cotswolds destination The Lakes by Yoo
The 785m² getaway is located on a plot on the most westerly lake of the 260 ha private estate and features a swimming pool, a games room, gym and home cinema.
A spacious atrium and spiral staircase connect the house vertically, while the building’s floor plates are skewed, orientating the first-floor bedrooms to offer views of the lake.
BACA director Richard Coutts said: ‘Water creates a profound connection with the spirit of the place. With the glass doors of the living room folded back and the use of a semi-gloss ceiling a gentle breeze washing over the pool will send reflections dancing across the room.’
The project aims to start on site in spring 2019.
