The Aurea-Alan Mascord Design Associates-01-1 Kindesign

The Aurea is an open and airy contemporary lake house was designed around light and space by Alan Mascord Design Associates, located in Portland, Oregon. Linear and angled, this modern-style home hugs the landscape. A low-slung roofline, a sprawling layout, and natural stone and wood materials unite the house to the surroundings. Juxtaposing the natural elements, a metal roof, banks of windows, and angular lines add a twist of artistic style. Angular lines begin at the front porch pergola, which appears to announce the entry.

The foyer leads into the two wings of the home and the upper level, which provide every comfort one desires. To one side are the shared formal areas of the dining room and living room. A beam ceiling, fireplace, and built-ins enhance the space for entertaining. The luxurious master suite and a private library also are in this wing. Walls of windows provide rear views in each space and fireplaces on a shared wall will help relieve the chill of winter air.

The shelves are framed as part of the tub deck, and finished in the same gorgeous tile as the the tub deck and floor. Besides providing the ideal space for towels, they create a wonderful break between the tub and walk-in shower.
