An active family-oriented lifestyle defines the design for this home in the Lake Wylie area of South Carolina. The clients’ two energetic young children and a pair of large dogs necessitate that the house provide the open spaces and play areas they need while also affording private moments for work and study. A pass-through driveway allows for a safe outdoor play space, and a partially enclosed courtyard organizes the house around a pool and backyard for use by all ages. As these spaces are overlooked by the kitchen and communal living space, the clients are able to keep a watchful eye while making dinner or entertaining.
While our clients love family time, they also wanted a space to relax, leading to the separation of the master suite and the children’s wing. The property also offers amazing views of Lake Wylie, visible from an expansive front porch. Ultimately, the design facilitates both large family gatherings, quiet moments for homework, and sporadic games of tag.
